Do Programmer's Need College Degrees Anymore?
Recently an old comment that Elon Musk made about the importance of college degrees popped up again in the media, as they tend to do every now and then for some strange reason. And people once again started talking about whether or not they needed to attend college to work on rockets and such. Well, if you're going to be working on a rocket, then I'm pretty much sure that yes, you do need some type of formal education. In fact, it's fair to say that Elon's heads of everything probably hold prestigious titles and have probably taught at a s

How Important Is College For A Successful Career
How Important Is College For A Successful Career

This is a question that I've asked myself plenty of times during the past ten years, as I'm sure many people ask themselves at some point. My thoughts on the matter change drastically from year to year. It can vary from "super important, can't get a job without it" to "I've used nothing that I learned in college in 8 years". But the older I get the more I tend to lean towards the latter mindset. I spent 5 years in college and all I have to show for it is a piece of paper that states that fact. I don't remember much of what I learned there and after a few years working as a software developer very few companies even mention the fact when I interview with them. I'm a professional web devel

College Work Vs Real World Work
College Work Vs Real World Work

The real world can be really really different than that which we are told in college. At least for me it was, anyway. The degree I received is very helpful, very much so. It got my foot through the door. It's on my wall, and to this day I don't know how I passed so many Calculus and Physics classes. But this post is all about what was taught compared to what was used. And just to mention, the calculus and physics have not been used yet. One day. I'll say this now, this may have had more to do with my schools curriculum than anything else. For the most part it was very linear and theoretical with almost no practicality. Some schools may offer fantastic classes where apps are build and items are 3D printed. If so, feel free to send me a message and let me know about the school ^_^ .

creating your own it crowd
creating your own it crowd

“Have you tried turning it off and on again?” Thus goes the punchline of one of Britain’s most entertaining and often surreal sitcoms of the 21st century, The IT Crowd. But while the zany antics of Moss, Roy and Jen may belong squarely in the realm of fiction (and rarely have much, if anything at all to do with IT) they do capture what it’s like to work in IT support in broad terms every now and then. There’s a whole lot more to IT support than asking people if they’ve tried rebooting their thin client (although you will likely do it at least once). If you have entrepreneurial ambitions you may come straight out the gate wanting to start your own IT crowd, delivering bespoke IT and communications systems to small businesses and making the world a better place one query at a time.
