Definitive Ranking of Programming Languages Most and Least Paid For

Published on 07 December 15

Nowadays everyone without rich parents to pay for Business School or rich grandparents to pay for Law School seeks to become an IT expert. Indeed, programmers are hands-down the most highly-paid specialists available on the market. Although most people have zero clue as to how hard studying, working and living as a programmer is, they still take only salary issues into consideration salary issues and spend the last hundred bucks to finish some kind of coding course. So what are the future coders hoping for?

Hundreds of thousands of annual income as a Java or iOS developer, a solid social package, quarter bonuses and well-to-do life after retirement. After all, why not? If dreams of a sky-high salary can make a person get up from the couch and do something with his or her professional career, why not figure out which programming languages are the most well-paid and which are less financially supercharged.

Most Highly-Paid

Ruby on Rails - $109,460

Objective C - $108,225

Python - $100,717

JAVA - $94,908

LeLeast Highly-Paid

C++ - $93,502

JavaScript - $91,461

C - 90,134

PHP/SQL - $85,511

When people see these figures, as suggested at they forget about working more than 10 hours a day, being constantly in touch with directors (for middle and senior level experts), staring into the code for most part of your life, and having difficulties with socializing, etc.

Becoming an architect on $200,000 a year is all people think of when looking at these figures. At the end of the day, all the languages, even HTML and CSS, could’ve been added to the most highly-paid list, as these sums are still bigger than salaries of 70% of people in the world.

Start with a basic HTML, CSS and PHP/JavaScript combination to live the life of a middle-class Rockefeller. Sure thing, Ruby keen will laugh when they see your paycheck, but hey, Ruby on Rails developers never laugh.
