    I forget - isn't Marek not an AMD employee? If so, is there some reason why he isn't?

    Rumour has it that he was offered a job, but he chose to finish his studies instead.

    Dont know about that... academic grades does matter less and less theese days. maybe I am wrong here but in germany it does not help you much to get a job.... its more like a min-requirement for some jobs... but like google manager said last week or so... good grades doesnt matter anymore at least for them.

    I dont think it helps you very much today... except like I said in germany and maybe on some other companies worldwide it is a min-requirement but for such a specialist that will most likely get applications from companies for starting a job I dont thinkt he would earn 1 dollar more or less with or without that grade.

    maybe if he gets older and needs still work because he did not get rich or he lost the money or something maybe in 20 years that matters.

    I have a diplom but today I even regret it a bit... you set maybe some wrong expectations... and you get older both helps you not by finding a job.

    Maybe I get discriminated by my weight, thats not illigal here for that reason and even if it would be try too proofe that ^^.

    here in germany job experience is basicly all if you have it you get a job if you dont its basicly excepted that you make more or less salary-free prakticas first... or again like I said if you are very lucky have a business appearence and have specialiest one some old garbage technology like java or even better even if you are retarded if you are willing to do SAP you will get a good payed job. But I have some self-respect so I am instead diplom-unemployed for some years now.

    I have 2 degrees and I can assure you I wouldnt be where I am today if I didnt get them. I don't regret going to school at all. Marek has certainly made the right choice.

    Depends on what sort of jobs you are aiming for. A talented and accomplished coder just might be aiming higher.

    In big companies' R&D departments you need a degree, and if you want to progress anywhere, a PhD is a must.

    Besides, not everyone goes to a university because they want more money. There is intrinsic value in learning.

    Not everything is about getting a job or making money. I'd say its pretty clear this guy has a genuine interest in technology and wants to learn more before committing to a career. Learning more about other areas of software/hardware is only going to make him (or anyone for that matter) a better developer, there is nothing worse than working with someone who is narrow minded and has only one view on how things can be done because they have only ever worked in one field and never completed formal (or even informal self educated) study. The idea of a degree is to give you a well rounded knowledge base that will stay with you for the rest of your life, its not just about the piece of paper.

    As for your current job situation obvious I dont know your background or what you do with your time, but the one thing I would say is you probably need to be more proactive. Aside from a degree the best thing you can have on your resume these days is a reference to some open source contributions, it shows you are both passionate about programming and have a willingness to learn. Setup an account at https://www.ohloh.net/ so that you can easily track your contributions and you can then give one link in you resume that potential employers can look at.

    If your looking for a project to get started with I would gladly offer some suggestions. Being unemployed you have a big advantage here as you should have the time to rack up some considerably large contributions. Myself working full time and having a family I find it hard to find the time to contribute regularly however even my small contribution have helped both getting jobs and even recently I was contacted out of the blue by Google for a phone interview without ever applying for a job.
