I don't work as a programmer.
I learnt programming outside the class.

It does really matter much.You can read a different course and learn programming and even be better than smn who read computer science..most guys who are good in program didn't even read computer science after all

As long as you have a personal computer, internet access, books and the right softwares and also the ability to solve problems.. Programming shouldn't be a problem.

Don't let anyone deceive you o!

While its true as it is written... 'seest thou a man diligent in his work? He shall stand before kings' ergo know-how is the selling point in IT... Certifications are used as a quick way to filter applications.

Other companies see it as a statement of character and more times than not it would get you through the door to showcase your skill

That is arrant nonsense, and a reason why many Nigerian programmers are poor and remain poor. I once had that thinking, therefore I became extra good - in fact too good for my own liking (I am a web-developer that can use multiple technologies - all the way from asp, perl, php, asp.net, MEAN STACK, at the same time a software developer (whether windows/mac osx), and also with a very strong foot in native mobile application development) - all that one na just tales by moonlight, yeah, it did not help me due to that arrant nonsense thinking of - if you are good.

Yeah, even if you are good - the naija companies will offer you nonsense salary. The last company that tried to employ me wanted to pay me 100k / month.

Abduletudaye:

Huh? Really?
Well, na so we see am o.

The summary of all this is that - the programmers that make money the most in Nigeria ARE NOT EMPLOYED ON A MONTHLY SALARY.

You need to start from the begining - which is to acquire your basic skills. Then you climb up the ladder, nothing wrong with doing employment work mind you - just that it is better to be an entrepreneur if you have got what it takes.
