While I'm salty that I paid a lot of money to get educated, I think it's the right direction. In this day and age determination and knowing how to ask the right questions is all you need to outperform anyone. College degrees serve little purpose beyond mitigating risk in human capital investment. For some industries, degrees are nonnegotiable (medical, law, aerospace engineering, etc). But for things that depend on innovation, problem solving, hard work, forget the degree. I'm a masters in psychology and taught myself how to build REST apis with google alone.

This was only a matter of time... and something I feel strongly about.

It's time people start to realize that it's not about getting fancy educations, it's about working on yourself and taking the time to get your mind right.

If you have or can build from within the hustle and work ethic (there's plenty of content out there that can help with this of course) and drop all the BS (fear/afraid of taking risks/what others think) you can achieve great heights!

Maybe this hints at the rise of the coding bootcamps. The argument these tech companies are making is essentially that college graduates are not being taught the skills they need to learn to be successful at their jobs. Universities are likely too theoretical.

So I see universities quickly adjusting their computer science programs to be more practical and applicable, thereby raising the value of the degree again, and/or short-term certificates in coding becoming a more popular options.

To get the job you still need to know how to code. The question is what will be the most effective, efficient, and consistent way to learn?
