It’s been almost two years now.
Anyway, I did this video called Computer Science Degrees Are Worthless For Web Developers… which okay. That’s an aggressive title, but the obvious point was you don’t need a CS degree to be a web developer.
I don’t think this is controversial.
But, apparently, it attracts know-it-alls like flies to… well you know.
Anyhoo, here’s another who just couldn’t help himself.
“No. Uou dont need a CS degree to be a web developer…”
Apparently, not to spell, either… but yeah, that’s what I said. So, we agree. You can stop there. There’s no need to rant on for another hour about how awesome your CS degree is. Oh. No? You’re going to anyway. Sigh. Okaaaay.
“…but the purpose of a CS degree is to be a Scientist in the field of Computers.”
Did you come up with that all by yourself?
“…Web dev is just a very small part of it. A CS degree can move you into the field of Robotics, or Autounomus vehicle software dev. Most Cs degrees can move you into the It field or many other fields.”
Great. I’m just talking about the one, though.
“A web dev is just a code jokey in a specialized field.”
Aaaaand, there it is.
That totally does not prove my point that most of the developers who argue with me about this: 1) have a CS degree, 2) just feel the need to justify all the muney they spent on it and 3) are elitist a-holes who use their degree to feel superior.
Nope. Not what you’re doing at all… /sarcasm.
In any case, to me, the point is simple and obvious.
You don’t need a CS degree to be a web developer.
In fact, a CS degree is probably a big waste of time and muney if all you want to do is web development. If you wanna get into that other stuff, then okay. But, if you KNOW web development is what you want.
A CS degree is overkill.
Anyway, you know the deal. There’s tons of much cheaper AND more effective ways to learn web development. Including yours truly’s curriculum on SkillShare. Not only will you NOT drop 100gg’s to do it.
You’ll actually learn web development.
Not robotics or whatever the hell else.
Anyhoo, you can get started with my curriculum for nothing on SkillShare. Link is here: https://www.skillshare.com/r/user/johnmorris.
