I wouldn't be likely to hire an "engineer" without a degree, but in
Canada that's effectively an oxymoron anyway. I would certainly hire
developers without degrees if they had the necessary background and
attitude/ability/etc to fill the job. (I've done this once so far.)
And I provide an *excellent* job for people. :)
Aahz is right. It's not essential, but generally it helps.
