Is it necessary to have a computer science graduate to become a developer?

I am a lifescience graduate and also a pharmacist..now I have a great interest in learning web designing and web development. now I am learning it from an institution. whenever I saw some softwares ,apps, and amazing websites then I ask myself why I can't,? sometimes I ask myself is it right choice to learn programming as I have already a medical field. if I can learn coding then what are the chances to found a great job in this field? sometimes I feel very confusing about what is right for me? as I am not a computer science student .

I don't have any degrees.... but I'm an artist, a programmer, a musician, a game developer, a web developer, a networker, a database administrator, an animator, a workforce analyst, etc... The point that I'm getting at is that you've never been isolated to just one thing, you've simply made the choice to do so. For myself, I recognize that one day I'm going to die and all of these things won't matter at all, especially all of the rules that revolve around all of it. So if that's the case, maybe I should spend all of my life engaging into the things that I want to experience instead. As such, I do my best to engage into anything that I find interesting and then I take the direction that I want to go from that moment in my life. So if you enjoy programming or web development, I strongly believe that you need to engage into that spark inside of you. It's telling you something and hopes that you're listening. We're very good at becoming deaf when our spirits are trying to speak to us. Listen to yourself; to your heart.

I have met so many great developers (in many countries) who don't have any CS degrees. They were so skillful, very respected, and proud of what they were doing. I think all you need is PASSION!! :-)

As someone currently studying computer science at university, I can see it being much more effective to study the topics that interest you outside of university. The main goal of university is to cover a wide range of topics without going into massive depth. The bulk of your knowledge comes from self teaching and research.

It's not necessary, but it helps; I'm in college pursing a bachelor's in CS

Your background doesn't matter. Your Determination and Persistence will keep you going when you are stuck. You learn by doing
