Do I need higher education web programmer? Stress, is a web programmer.
Undoubtedly, the game developer, which develops the physics engine, without it will be difficult.
But if you take a web developer. For which he the whole course of higher mathematics, physics, etc not to mention descriptive geometry, chemistry and other General non-programming items.
If you need to know topic in higher mathematics, it is easier to learn only it, and not the entire course with a bunch of other items? This is how to download a DVD repository for a pair of packets.
About education programming in Universities of the Russian Federation to say, I think not. No, there are a few places in Russia where more or less teach programming, but most of the studies for show (read for the diploma). And programming I believe is difficult to teach, it is necessary to feel, to breathe it in. The more that the programmer is no self anywhere, and if it for some reason is not suitable or it is not enough, much more useful is to go to specialized courses.
Only stops that some companies do not take the job without to. Although is this right: in the end, who take on the job of mathematician or programmer? In General requestby statistics Abravanel – what percentage of vacancies for developers with the requirement and without.
One of the advantages of the University it is possible to note low-cost housing (dormitory), i.e. the opportunity to move to another city.
Don't you think that 5 years of training can be spent more usefully? During this time you could work, gain experience, and generally become a highly skilled programmer.
I would like to hear strong arguments in favor of higher education.
