College courses won't teach you how to deal with a manager or take over a project that's had 15 devs before you, but they will teach you the basic skills you need and give you the formal training to be comfortable in advanced techniques. People like Spolsky who were already programming at age 12 think college courses are useless because they spent four years not learning anything new. If you need to learn, go to school. That's what school is for.

This guy is a little older than I am so of course nearly everything we learned in college (FORTRAN anyone?) is pretty much obsolete by now and our real education came from "real life" ... if your situation is not that of a 40+ year old geezer with 20+ years of experience I suggest go to class and pay attention.
