I worked at a Casino Game company and the lead developer for the company's bread-winning product didn't have a CS degree (or any degree at all). He was however a deeply intelligent and mathematical person who taught himself all the aspects of graphics and audio programming. He created the entire game engine for 3-reel video slot in early 90s working as a contractor, sold it for a song and later got back into the company as a high-level developer. Now he works at Gibson Guitars as an audio software embedded engineer doing the kind of waveform transforms that he loves so much Posted Image

Bottom line, the CS degree gets you past HR, the rest is up to you.
