Steve - no degree (did 2 years of BSc in Comp Sci and ran out of cash).

Senior Systems Developer and Operations Analyst on IBM's MVS systems

I personally don't care if a candidate for a role I'm hiring for has a
degree or not, nor where she/he got it. I'm far more interested in their
ability to do perform in the role. I will hire you if you've got nothing
more than a handful of GCSE's over a graduate if your the right person for
the job.

When 1 person suffers from a delusion it is insanity. When many people
suffer from a delusion it is called Religion.
