A new survey from Stack Overflow finds that 48 percent of developers do not have a computer science degree, and 33 percent have never taken a single college-level CS course. Among those surveyed, 42 percent said they taught themselves to code.

The report also found that "for many developers, programming is a labor of love. The average developer spends more than seven hours per week coding on the side."
