  •  One of the best programmers I have ever hired (4+ / 0-)

    was a college dropout, a technician running a one-hour photo machine when I brought him on. We paid him to sit and play with Photoshop for a week and after that he was off and running, eventually making his way to being a pretty kick-ass perl programmer.

    He ended up going to work for a university eventually, where he finished his degree under their free tuition benefit while working full time.

    Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!
