I don't think what I'm asking for is fit for Stack Exchange, but I felt I should at least ask anyway.
I'm a self taught programmer who's been working in the field for a couple of years. I took a look at some tests from courses in a good school nearby, and felt like it was all about right/wrong rather than creativity and making things awesome.
Now I'm looking for advice from someone who can share some experience on how schooling has impacted their personal style and joy of programming. Is there a place to ask such a question on Stack Exchange?
