Hate to break it to you, my dude, but absolutely nobody is going to hire a middle aged freshly graduated CS bachelor's holder, and for good reason. It takes a lot of sleepless nights buoyed by youthful energy to attain competence in software development. I doubt you'd even be able to finish the bachelor's program in 5 years. So you'll be 36-40 by the time you apply for an entry level programming job. Absolutely nobody is going to hire you. They will (probably rightly) assume that you're looking to finally settle down with a paycheck, which is exactly the type of employee who is a burden on a fast-moving software company. Every software company I've worked at has the 40-something year old dude who has made his one-man department opaque and difficult to work with as a form of job security.

If you're not looking for a job as a developer, and just want to see how the sausage is made, then go for it. But otherwise, you'll want to go to trade school. You could get a job as a quality assurance analyst, and start with writing test automation scripts. You could really move up from a position like that; I've even seem some developers who started out here. It looks a lot better on a resumè to have a few years at a company where you advanced into a development position, with a proven value-added work history, than some no-experience degree. Trust me on that one.

No. If you have the motivation to study, just do it. You will probably be working until you are about 70 years old or so. Also, if you have been following your dreams until this point, why stop now? I would recommend a Computer Engineering degree over a Computer Science degree, though.

>>966079

>>966101

>College is a scam

>college is for faggots

It depends on several factors, such as:

* What you want to study?

* Which country?

* Which school?

* How you are going to spend your time there? (This is the most important. Don't be a MIT Nigger who can only repeat what their prof said without understanding anything in reality)

Getting a degree is recommended, if you want to get hired, since HR people don't know shit about programming and the people who do know are still reluctant to hire a self-taught NEET (because they have zero way of knowing whether you are a larper or if you actually know something. Someone with a degree from a okay school will at least have the skill required to learn the skill needed to do the job)

Computer Engineering programmes are more universal, uniform and similar wherever you study, but Computer Science programmes can be useless webmoneky tier crap (in other words, it depends a lot more on where you study because the quality of CS programmes vary more) Also, learning low-level stuff is beneficial for understanding high(er)-level stuff. Also, a CE programme teaches you more practical things, whereas a CS programme teaches you a lot of things that have little use outside of academia. And finally, a CE programme provides you with knowledge from a much broader area than a CS programme (I like to think that CE is somewhere between CS and Electrical Engineering)

Only if you're trying to get a senior programmer position immediately after you get your degree, which is impossible in the first place. You can't immediately jump straight into a mid-career position as a programmer. You simply don't have enough experience for something like that.

Somewhat inexperienced PL researcher here

If you go deep enough into studying PL, you realize almost nobody knows what they're talking about anyways and the only things you actually need to know are proof search and recursion. Everything is ultimately just a variant on those two things anyways.

The category theorists are basically just glorified cultists (they even have their own system of sigils and proclaim the sigils are the one and only universal truth), the type theorists have their heads up their asses (they came from philosophy, so this is par for the course) and the set theorists either don't know anything (they came from math and actually believe in Zermelo-Fraenkel as the basis for mathematics) or they're actually just type theorists. There's a lot of overlap between these groups. If someone doesn't fit into any of these, they might actually know something, but will probably be into slightly more convenient rearrangements of arbitrary symbols, they also tend to know some neat algorithms or do more than just PL to keep their research moving. There are very few people who are ready, willing and funded enough to do the PL research that would actually move the field itself forward and of those I'm not sure anybody has the raw talent necessary to pull it off.

Learn a functional programming language (either Scheme or ML), a logic programming language (Prolog's search strategy makes it the worst, use anything else, even miniKanren) and a dependently-typed programming language (I recommend Software Foundations to learn Coq). If you realize that type theory basically ends at logic programming (types are just glorified logic programming predicates) then you know about as much as anybody in the field. Wrestle with a hard optimization-focused compilers project for a long enough time and you'll be ready for pretty much any PhD program in PL. Whether it will enthuse you enough once you understand it is a different question.
