Question by Blue: How do i find a college that teaches php and Mysql?
I been doing php for years and know my way around. My dad said i need a degree in it or i won’t get anywhere in life. My local college only teachers ASP dot net and MSSQL. I asked the lady at the tour “Do they teach Php?”. She said no. I asked why and she told me ASP Dot Net is for the business world. Php is only for hobby programmers and not many sites use it… Well i know Facebook, WordPress and tons of other sites are powered by it. and now that my dad heard that, he thinks i am wrong going after a degree in Php. My dad said i need a degree to get hired. He wants me to work for Google or Facebook. I live in Ohio. I really want to start my own cloud based computing platform with Php, Mysql, Jquery and Css which i am good at and been working on this for a while. But i think if i do that i still need a agree as a fail safe. I think Php and Mysql is the right path but he wants me to be a ASP programer but i believe in open. So what should i do? How do i find a college that teaches what i want?

Just get a Computer Science degree and don’t worry about it. You can (and will eventually have to) learn other languages on your own. It doesn’t require a college course or degree to do that.
