It depends on each country of course .. in my country, a good programmer earns around $35000 / year, while the average salary is somewhere around $6000 / year
Wow, I didn’t realise the average salary was slacking behind so much still, compared to European averages :o

Yeah .. it’s crazy. There is a really big difference between the top salaries and the low ones.. And a lot of people have low-mid..

:shocked: OMG ! That’s really not much!

Here in Switzerland the poverty line is $2400/month while the average wage is $6240/months!

But life here is very expensive too… :notfunny:

A good programming job here in Australia will get you $80,000-$120,000AUD/year if you have the right qualifications (ie: university degrees) and industry experience (ie: lots of good past employment history). Also depends on where you are living (eg: you get more in Sydney because it costs more to live in Sydney). I think the average wage is around $50,000 to $70,000 a year.

In my country (Pakistan), you can hire a really good developer for $500 and a professional for $1000 a month, degree or not, it’s the same case.

Yeap, I can confirm what Ruben said, in Romania the average salary is somewhere around $5000 ($6000k at the best), while the living is quite expensive comparing to other European countries (I’m referring to food).

Wow that’s crazy for European averages.

If you ever will be unemployed give me a call Ruben ,I’ll move you to a new country with lots of sunny beach and hot girls and pay you 10 time more from the average salary there :P .

Also what you charge for hourly rate don’t do much grace to you base on your skills, but if you are happy with that i am OK with it :P
