Does anyone work as a developer fulltime and was hired without a degree?

We have other fulltime devs but I don't know their degree pedigree.

ok
It seems like fun instead of work but I'm sure there are lots of challenges.

In my opinion, it depends on if you like debugging. 90% of your time will be debugging, not coding. Some people like the challenge of fixing problem after problem with no end in sight. Some people get frustrated.

How long would it take you think to get even a entry level programming/ computer job?

Hey Jared. There is honestly no way I'd feel comfortable even hazarding a guess on that. It depends on far far too many factors. How much study time, how fast you pick it up, what type of job you are looking for, what the job market itself looks like, where you are willing to work, what jobs are available where.
There is no set formula. Someone might take years. Someone else might take 6 months.
