Bypass minimum degree requirements?

Hey! I’m trying to become a web developer. My friends say that I have an eye for design but, right now, I am too young to get a degree. However, most jobs require a degree. Would an impressive-looking personal portfolio/site convince them otherwise?
PS: Are CMS’s squashing out plain web developers?

A portfolio is always good; for design work it’s pretty much a must. At least in the USA private sector, degree requirements are hardly ever enforced, and any shop that did is one you probably wouldn’t want to work for.

So yes, make a portfolio.

Only mindless web-monkey developers so unskilled that a CMS could do their job.

I have spoken to a few coders and computer companies and they said if your good, you could get in with just some certificates (like freecodecamp certificates!)
