Posts I've Made
Posted 12 Mar 2014Agreed with tlhIn'toq.
Like I said, most of the places I lived weren't even in that calculator. Yet I've made great money, relative to my cost of living. My cost of living is like 25k where I live currently (before partying... woooh), and I own a house. I'm close enough to big city that if I want to visit I can, but far enough away that it's pretty cheap living (not as cheap as some no name town in the middle of nowhere, it's still a pretty hopping town where I'm at).
So cheap that I'm not even living there, and I'm working remotely from New England, again in a small town, where my living costs are low, but I can go skiing in just a half hour drive (well that'll stop this month).
Sure, I work for a small company no one has ever heard of. Sure I will probably never work for Google. But I don't care... I can travel around the country and work remotely out of small places and see stuff the way I like it. And know that if I needed to, for whatever reason, head back to Florida and the sunshine, and still make 3 or even 4 times my cost of living. This for a guy who grew up on food stamps in section 8 housing and doing things not exactly legal... I think I'm doing stellar!

Quoterealized in my area (Metro-Atlanta) even Junior Developer jobs (only requirement is a CS degree, in terms of experience) pay a huge amount of money.
Is this all of them, or just a few you've seen?
Don't forget the ever so important cost of living adjustment.
I checked that calculator out.
None of the cities I've ever worked in, other than Los Angeles, are available as choices.
Oh, New York and Yakima are on there. But I didn't work in Yakima, and I didn't live in New York.
Posted 12 Mar 2014First off, C# is .Net
Secondly, pay is very region specific. Atlanta is a big tech hub, so there's a lot of high paying jobs.
You might go to another region that has lower, or even higher paying gigs.
The USA is a big place, and cost of living varies, with it comes varying pay scales.
Posted 10 Mar 2014ohhhhh, yeah, that sounds fun!
Definitely know what I'm listening to tomorrow at work.
Posted 10 Mar 2014Oh the benefits of loop holes.
It makes me think of those orthodox jewish stores that trade in wares that allow you to circumvent the 'no work on sabbath' rule. What work is, is defined. So they sell devices that use air to power things, or remove buttons from it and replace with loop hole methods of activating the machine.
