Yes, fortunately you can ^^ but you still have to study a lot. I'm quoting Andrei Neagoie: " 4. An industry that doesn’t require a specialized degree from a university. You don’t want to spend the next 4 years getting into debt and going to a graduate program before you start making money. And yes, I think there are better alternatives than going to an expensive coding bootcamp." Totally recommend you his guide if you're just starting out: https://hackernoon.com/learn-to-code-in-2018-get-hired-and-have-fun-along-the-way-b338247eed6a Happy learning and coding 👍^^

ifl -- yup, and it's also my case 😊 though I do have several coworkers that don't have any degree and they got backend and frontend jobs too 👍

Pao Yes of course👍 Then most people I know who went into software without a degree, end up doing some open university education, or some sort of recognized qualification. So everything is possible (But still a lot of work and hardship)

You can get some job as a coder in html/JavaScript if you can demonstrate some experience, and if you keep working hard at learning stuff. But if you have a chance to get a degree, just take it. It will give you more options for a career in the future. (You can always use those coding skills to get a summer job or a good internship, that will help towards university fees)

Note that the author of the post that Pao is referring to has a degree (Albeit not in CS, but he still went to uni, and no doubt it helped him to be where he is).

Yes. but you do need exp. A work folder (GitHub), OpenSource projects to contribute...
