Computer Science vs Self-Taught vs Coding Bootcamp (ft. Quincy Larson)

Quincy Larson is the creator of FreeCodeCamp.com, the #1 way to learn code for free. FreeCodeCamp is also the most starred repository on GitHub with 172k stars. The next most starred repo is Twitter bootstrap with 100k stars. Quincy has a degree in the liberal arts, and does not have a computer science degree. He is a completely self-taught coder.

(Note: numbers are at the time I created this video. Stars is the same as 'favoriting')

1:00 Who should/shoudn't get Computer Science Degree?
2:11 Facts on Software Egineering & Computer Science Jobs
3:16 What to Expect on Computer Science graduates
4:19 Software Engineering VS Computer Science
6:45 Who should/shoudn't go to coding boot camp
12:30 Who should/shoudn't do self taught

From Psychology to Code - story of a self-taught developer.

I went from studying psychology to building a business, to teaching myself how to code. Teaching yourself how to code is so much easier today, than it was when I started in 1994, simply because there are more online options open to you today.
