Does having a CS degree matter?
Yesterday, I talked with an old friend (that I haven't seen for a while) and we ended up talking about CS degrees. Are they really important? Well, I'd say yes...at least, that's what I would say 5 years ago. Why 5 years ago and not now? Simply because I think Joel is absolutely correct: as he says in this great article, you cannot use Java in CS courses (which seems to be the standard nowadays)! If you want to know why, just read the article and you'll see what I mean.
