So I've been thinking some ideas on going to college but its just WAY to expensive for me and I really don't want to deal with debt my whole life.

So my question is, can one be self taught, say... through W3 Schools for example? Has anyone went through and self taught themselves?

Education in programming can be weak. The best usually program their own projects which push them harder than course work.

So while you can educate yourself and i am critical on formal education. The point of being taught is that you are taught how to code for teams using formal methods.

You can tech yourself how to code simple stuff how do you go about teaching yourself how to code larger projects without shooting yourself in the foot.

But when your self taught will you introduce yourself to code architecture? Models like MVC, object oriented, etc

I got a bit of a push thanks to a good group of coders, but pretty much self taught myself to code addons for vBulletin.
