I have no degree, and am head of software development (in a small 
company allbeit).

I got asked about not having a degree in about 50% of interviews. And 
now I interview others, and I gave one person a job who had a nice 
portfolio of work over another person who had 3 degrees.

I think non-it-savvy employers look for degrees because they have no 
other way of measuring.
