I have never seen the amount of opportunity I see today with the possible exception of the early dotcom boom. If you can "kinda" code you can get a job RIGHT NOW. You gotta be able to "kinda" though, but if you can do anything business needs in tech right now get out there.
My kid turned down a soccer scholarship, dropped out and made me think he was going nowhere. HOWEVER, with no degree and completely self taught he is now a data analytics manager at the age of 24. He lives without a roommate behind the Orange Curtain. Nothing says SUCCESS like being able to live by yourself in Silicon Valley South!
