Seconded. I have been working as a programmer for 20 years (was literally my after school job in high school). I went to college long enough to realize they were a good 5 years behind the industry when it came to technology.

If you passed the companies entry interview you should be fine. Just pay close attention and learn as much as you can for the first few months, after that you can probably coast comfortably.

I second this too.

One thing you may not realize is that it is normal in computer programming to learn specific languages and technologies on your own. The other programmers around you who have degrees sometimes have more knowledge of fundamentals and how things work under the hood, but they probably learned their practical C++ skills on their own or on the job just like you.
