Self-taught in web/mobile dev. Tired of retarded app shit. Is formal education worth it or should i just “level up” on my own?

Looks like the same app shit I’m doing now? I want to go into graphics or something complex like that.

the basic curriculum is out there on the web...it's just algorithms and some math...really, the only important math is Big (O)...the rest of it, eh...just having some appreciation of mathematical analysis, approaching things from a math viewpoint, is all you need

big O is useful, but to program you do need a mindset that is math-oriented, even if you never really use the math explicitly...and CS/math courses like Automata are quite useful as well

i mean, i don't even think you need to know big O in a strict academic sense.

just be mindful and rational about how loops, exponents, recursion and size of data sets affect execution time. that's something you pick up on the job kind of anyway. everyone here has the basic mathematical skill to figure it out.

if you can understand this article and develop intuition about when a function will perform well or poorly you're probably good: https://rob-bell.net/2009/06/a-beginners-guide-to-big-o-notation/

I know all of this stuff already. It’s tested in interviews even at my level. There’s a higher level proficiency though

lol @ "practice sets". literally, just build stuff. use online courses, tutorials, documentation, etc. as reference material (nothing more).

What do you mean “already”? You need to learn it at some point regardless of how smart you are. I literally lied my way into a coding career and have just been coasting

gaming companies are notorious for terrible working conditions. because everyone wants to be a game developer, they can get away with treating their devs like crap.
