Years experience over unfinished degree?

7 personal stuff removed

I'm currently in my placement year and working for a great software development company. It was always my intention of getting to this stage through university, getting enough academic experience as well as the year’s placement and then try to get a full time programming job without the need to finish my degree. I decided this from an early stage as I have never really liked the whole university environment :(. I was so unhappy at university and I’m so happy now I’m on my placement year, I really don’t know if I can go back :(.

My question is, do you think companies will take me on if I apply for other jobs after my placement year and not penalize me for not finishing my degree? I apologize for the poor punctuation.

Thank you for your information :) I guess at the end of the day I don't want to look back on my life and think "god, why didn't I just spend one more year being unhappy to have a job I love" but I know that even if I get a degree I could still end up without a programming job and this worries me more than anything :(.
