How Much do Programmers get Paid?



+ Add a Comment


Is this an average? And if so, from what level of position?



You  shouldn't refer to computer scientists and software engineers as programmers, programmer is low paying job that requires some on the job training and not a college education, to give you an idea their referred to as code monkeys in industry, implying that a monkey could do the job. Many engineers and scientists do very little programming if any and pretty much just design the architecture of a system, while delegating the programming job to people who don't have 4 years of education to waste. When someone tells exactly what a module of a program needs to do and how to do it, you don't need a college education to accomplish the task in code.
