Would I need a high school diploma or GED to get a job as a Web Developer?

I dropped out of High School years ago and I am looking to become a Front End Web Developer. Would I need a high school diploma or GED to get a job in this field?

You need a college degree of some sort actually. Yes it's true that so long as you have the training a cs degree isnt necessary. But companies still want SOME kind of degree. So having a techdegree plus say a sociology degree from a 4 year school makes you good. Just a techdegree without that college degree as well? No chance.
