Is a great example of how much of a difference it can make... The comment box on this sites mobile version is an example of script kiddies at work. I can't even read what I'm typing.

You don't need a CS degree to work at Google. Not even as a software engineer.

No you don't. But you better at least have the equivalent of a 4 year degree in self learning and projects. A bootcamp isn't going to remotely cut it

Yes. Passion and dedication are required. Paper certs and degrees are optional.
