Chris Roane's Blog:
Should PHP web programmers go to college?
September 06, 2010 @ 12:09:38

Chris Roane has a new post to his blog asking an interesting question - should PHP programmers/developers spend the time to go to college?

A common debate in our field is whether or not a college education is worth it when becoming a PHP programmer. People will throw statistics in how much more money you can make with a college degree. But is the cost of college (time + tuition) for a four year degree better than the benefits of having four years of experience in the web programming field?

He qualifies it with the fact that not all college educations are created equal and that it depends on the student as to what they get out of it. He breaks it up into a few different sections with reasoning in each:

  • The Benefits of Going to College
  • The Cost of Going to College
  • The Benefits of a PHP Programmer Not Going to College
  • The Negative Aspects of a PHP Programmer Skipping College
