Fired you as a student or fired you as an employee?

Do you need a degree? Depends. It helps, but plenty of folk who have made it sans a degree.

Ah.. well.. no clue on your country/regions work requirements but yeah, folks have made their own way without a degree. Maybe worked a little harder to get past the HR folk and certainly had to know things more solidly.. but it happens.

Degree no. Skill yes. If you didn't complete training then you have to do it on your own. Then you have to overcome the fact that that you don't have a degree to point to. So you have to point to something else to prove you can do the job. Like maybe making programs on the side and selling them independently. If you can do that, then an employer has a reason to believe you could do what they hire you for.

Perhaps you can try for an internship somewhere. If you can swing it, try a 3 or 4 month non paid internship at a software company and see if you can pick up some skills in the process. Hopefully your health is much better because if that is still a problem, you should work on getting yourself healthy first and then get the internship. That way you can work and learn while being healthy so you won't be forced to drop out again.

But like the other said, you don't need a fancy degree to make it in tech. If you are willing to develop and show your skills, companies often look past the education. All they really want to know is that you can do the job and do it well. :)

In my country companies looking for Java developers all the time, even world quit on Java, it stinks, because Java developers quitting companies here, and anyone can work for this kind of company, whatever you are into, if you know how and what to do, they take you.
Martyr2 said the truth. Most jobs around computers doesnt exist in any kind of school and you have to learn it in alternative way (read, experimental, try, pay for it, whatever), so companies doesnt looking for a specific degree, some peoples have it and dont know it, some peoples are poor, dont have anything, but their whole life purpose are in it, so no one care, its good to have a paper, a degree and material to show someone who may be interested in, but if you have a skill they need, you win, whatever you are.
