That's a little different than employing a sweatshop worker without a high school education to make Nikes for 2 cents an hour.
I politely disagree.
You don't need a basic college degree in any course in order to be a decent programmer. That's the beauty of it.
Most companies say the minimum requirements are bachelors in computer science yadda yadda, however, right beside that they will have "or proven experience" because they know that you don't need to go to school to be a good programmer. There are programmers who learn on their own.
Although, having that fancy diploma would still look nice.
