I, like most everyone who posts on this site, want to have some part in developing a game. Since I don''t fancy myself an artist, I thought I''d try the programming end of things. So, I''ve recently started taking community college classes in C++ programming. I''m doing pretty well and I think the stuff is very interesting. I plan to take all the C++ courses offered by the college. But now I''m starting to wonder if these community college classes and further self study will be enough to get a job in the industry. When I see help wanted-programmer ads, they seem to always want someone with at least two years industry experience or a compsci degree. I already have an unrelated Bachelor degree (chemistry/biology), and I would not look forward to spending the amount of time (and money) necessary to get another degree. So, what''s the skinny? Do I need a new degree?

Any programmer worth beans knows that the field of computer programming changes too fast to make a degree mean much in any length of time.
