hello,
I'm a high school student that want to take software engineering as a career path, i already know some scripting languages like PHP and javascript and considering to go to a university for education however some people tell me not to go to software engineer path as they claim that nowadays anyone can read some programming and system analyses (analyses, design, implementation , testing and documentation) books and be able to develop books. i don't think that these books can make real software engineers do you agree and what university teach that books don't?

A degree certainly helps but there are still lots of people out there working with software with other degrees or no degrees. Software is a field where there are no standards required; each employer determines what works for them.

I would recommend having a back-up plan as software careers are not as lucrative as they once were.

by back-up you mean take a degree in another career field?
