I don’t think getting a computer science degree is a waste of time. If you can afford it then definitely go. Some people might disagree but I think there is a lot of value in a cs degree.
I think that is totally normal. I am not that much older than you (I’m 29) and when I was in my early 20’s I was trying to adult and figure things out as well. (Still trying to figure things out )
I am learning how to code on my own but going back to university is not an option for me. If it is an option for you I think it will be very beneficial and a lot of employers still value a degree. You can still build side projects and work through the FCC curriculum. You might be a little time crunched since it sounds like you are pursuing a duel degree but it is definitely possible.
Hope that helps!
If getting a degree in CS is an option that is available to you, and one that you’re excited about, then I definitely encourage you to go for it. I started my CS degree when I was about the same age and I do not regret it at all.
Thank you a bunch. Getting this adult thing right is…challenging but we got this
I just see a lot of comments online about importance of where you get it from. Which made me super nervous cause my university isn’t in the best in South Africa ( University Of South Africa) but the only one which allows me to study while looking for a job if I’m not taken at the company I will be interning in. Idk just don’t want to make a reckless move after studying so hard.
I don’t have any insight on the hiring practices in South Africa, so I don’t know how much employers nay care where your degree is from. Setting that aside, I would suggest looking at the course offerings at your school and think about whether that indicates a program that’s worth your time and money.
