Discussion on: As a self-taught, have you considered getting a degree afterwards?

Concur with many here, the degree is not so important (I've even heard plenty talk about the bad effects of a degree gain before real experience). If you're interested in some other topic (math, philosophy, whatever) you could always snag a degree in that just so you can check the box of "I have a college degree" and you might learn something interesting. Otherwise, just let you're work experience and any projects you can share speak for you, I'd say.
