I am pursuing a degree in CS but im also a Javascript Hacker out of the classroom, (wrongly hating Java by default, I blame the community). I thought I would struggle coming into a Java class because "Java is to Javascript as Ham is to Hamster" blah blah blah. College forced me to see the similarities, for-loops, dot/bracket notation, using a library to import certain methods etc... I would never have drill myself to learn these if I didn't go to school because I would have stayed away from Java as far as possible but I'm glad I did. It also gave me extra confidence and self-validation that the code I write works kind of like Test Driven Development ;)

Everyone should go to as much education they can afford or what they seem necessary, and learning out of classroom is important as well
