WGU. Bleh. Changing from Info Assurance to Software Development B.S. Bad idea?
About 2 years ago, the company I work for sent me out to a bunch of SANS courses, so I stopped going to WGU with the intent on going back to finish the 3 courses + capstone project to get my B.S. in Cybersecurity and Information assurance. I just got my evaluations back for the school, and the program changed so much that they are requiring 14 classes form me, including the A+ cert (which was never even on the table from when I started in the first place).
I’m switching to Software Development. There is a lot of back and forth on whether or not this is a good degree to get into software development, but I’m not sure why it is or why it isn’t.
Would you say this degree is worth pursuing if I wanted to become a software developer? I don't want to waste my time here if I should be doing something else.
My development experience is extremely minimal. I’ve done 11 years of software testing before jumping into security.
