it should be mentioned that it also depends on your area of study.  i myself have learned a crapload in chemistry, but i think that's mainly because chemistry (and science in general) isn't generally something you can pick up off of tutorials.  and even if it is, it certainly doesn't have the sheer number of tutorials online that programming does.

Same thing goes for languages. I'd rather not attempt to learn a language from online tutorials.

when you go to uni you are self taght thats the whole point, you learn how to learn, i was introduced to PHP and ASP and C++ and ADA and C and JS and JAVA and the rest and i made of them what i could over 3 years learning more and more, at uni they teach you the basics of programming then they teach you how it works and constructs and then they release you to languages whith a 6 hour course to the language cos lets face it all languages are the same OOP and Processes and your done. To make complex programs you need to know how to design abstract and detailed, for OOD OOP and other UML based stuff and JStructP. University is good.

Self taught rules.

Look at microsoft's cruddy non-compliant website that only works right in a single browser.

That's what happens when you pay to write code.

It's much better to write code for free, or even get paid to write code. :)

I suppose I'm self-taught. Read PHP books and used W3 schools to learn all I currently know (which isn't very much :P).

Self taught. Going to college for it would be very silly. Get yourself a real degree like engineering and do programming on your free time. If you have to, sign up for an online course. Seriously, you don't make good money as a php programmer. 60 grand tops.

ASP.net is a different story.

I voted self taught, but to be honest, I believe their should be another field, although this field would conflict with self taught. *text books* or just *books* in general, such as "SAMS teach yourself PHP in 24 hours" and books like that.

That's covered by self-taught.

Looking up stuff on PHP.net counts as self-taught right?

doing your own research including google, books, trial and error, php.net, phpfreaks, etc = self taught.
being taught by a qualified professional = edumacated.

Uhhh....I don't know about anyone else, but I would consider that to be very good money, I would be happy with it :)

I'm 16 years old and I self-taught myself when I was 15, I understand fully but still learning some advance things.

Self-taught. But prior to PHP I'd also taught myself C, C++, Pascal(Delphi), Java, OOP, SQL so the transition wasn't too hard, just a matter of getting familiar with the function libraries.
