Is this question OK for Programmers? How to be a successful programmer without a CS degree
To me "the essence of question" somehow does not feel quite right.
This in essence, is my question:
- How do I objectively determine what areas of study, general knowledge, and other skills I would have gained through a CS degree that I may or may not be lacking in now?
- How do I sort these skills in order of most importance?
- What is the best way (over the next two years) to supplement my education to attain those attributes in such a way to match or even surpass the level of a CS undergrad from a top university?...
The way they are spelled now, first and third bullets of above seem to have nothing to do with programming. Also, third bullet doesn't look constructive - "what is the best way".
As for the second bullet - "...order of most importance?" - this doesn't look constructive nor even remotely specific. "Most" - not constructive. "Importance" - not specific.
