Hi. I know that one of the subjects that people are most curious about is also a rather taboo one. I thought I would just share some information about my salary history here for anyone who wants to see it. If any other professionals feel comfortable doing the same, please do include things like your location, as that is a significant factor.

What's the minimum salary a web developer has ever had and what were their obligations?

I think this is great and we need more examples of salary. I understand some people are hesitant if their profiles point to their IRL personhood, but as the barrier of entry drops with more online education and resources I think it’s important for people to have realistic expectations and also some motivation for their hard work.

A less revealing format one could use would be:
Title/role of position:
Years:
Location:
Company type: (Small, medium, large)
Salary:
Languages:

Thanks for this! I hope more people contribute.

Although it’s a taboo question, such websites as Glassdoor or Indeed collect information about salaries in different companies around the world. We gathered data from these resources and made tables comparing programmers income in US, Canada and Europe (tech stack and seniority level are taken into account), you can check them here - https://qubit-labs.com/average-software-developer-salaries-salary-comparison-country/.
