I'd be curious to know the average Delphi salary in the US. I'd be surprised if it was lower than most of these.

That salesforce Architect thing looks promising, though. I've always wanted to do sfa. :)

Yeah, it does appear that someone forgot to look at Delphi when compiling that list. :(

I found far more surprising that a Python/Ruby (and even Java) programmer earns more than a C/C++ one... obviously there is some skewing those results due to some overpaid web programmer :) Or maybe it's all those open source Linux contributors that working for free lower the average pay.

Anyway there is a big difference if you have your skill to someone else, or you sell applications. In the latter case, users won't care what your application is written in - as long as it works well.

So there is a need to introduce Tiny, Micro and Nano companies to accomodate
this....

My case is a Nano company with 3 ;)

Hm, reminds me of something else: not too long ago Intel introduced
those Quark named processors (basically modified 80486's) as a lower
power (and lower performance) and lower cost plattform below the Atom.
Now they start to name new Atoms no longer Atom but x3, x5 and x7.

Hm, how will those Quarks be named in the future? y3, y5 and y7?

Nobel? For the prize they won for finding out what quarks are made
of?

I don't suppose quarks in our Atoms are made up of slightly reworked
i486 CPUs... ;-)

And Noble wouldn't fit into the (new) <letter><one of the numbers 3, 5
or 7> naming sheme.
