I've been in business for 30 years. I've met a few people who said a CS degree was helpful in their tech career, but not many. I certainly think there are some the find it valuable, and depending on the complexity of your software, perhaps.
Jeff Atwood (StackOverflow/Disqus) has said an English degree might be best. You need tech aptitude, but communication, understanding how to analyze/critique things, those are important. Many of us can figure out the steps needed for a program to work.
I don't know I think there is much of anything that I've done in 30 years that I think I couldn't have learned on the job.
