In this video I share my story of how much I got paid as a computer programmer straight out of university in addition to my salary and employment history as time went on.

If you’ve ever wondering about how much an app developer makes or the salary of a computer science grad then I hope you enjoy this video.

I live in Toronto, Canada so these salary numbers have to be taken into context with average cost of living and salaries for software developers in this city.

I’ve worked C#, .NET, WPF, MS Surface, Silverlight, HTML/CSS, JavaScript, Flash, Adobe Flex, Windows Phone 7 and finally iOS.

It’s been quite a journey and in the process, I’ve quit 3 times to try to start my own business. At some points, I was making about $18,000 a year while on my own.

Key takeaways:
– Know what you’re worth by keeping a pulse on the current job market
– Don’t give up on your dreams and understand that you might get there in a way you didn’t expect

Thank you very much for telling your story! I think you are very down to Earth and easy to relate too! I’m glad you’ve been able to move around so much job wise and have things keep working out for you! I’m just starting out with python and looking to narrow my goals a bit. You’re video has helped me out with that some I think! Thanks again!

Hey Chris. I have no idea if you'll read that (because this is an older video) but you motivated me to learn something new. Right now I'm a system engineer in germany and worked in the field for about 7 years (including 3 years of professional training). I'm bored of it (although I love working with computers since I was 8 or 9) and think about doing something else. I think your channel and tutorials gave me the "kick" I needed to do that. So thank you and keep up the good work!

Hey Chris, I am a computer Science Student in Kenya and I really love your experiences, I would like to know if it could be possible I get an internship in your current company either while still in university or after university. Great work you doing by the way. Keep it up.

Hi, Chris. I found your video about programming an iOS app yesterday and found it very easy to understand. I watched 10 more videos and hope to continue learning the xCode and Swift with your tutorials. I thing you have a great explanatory power that helps to understand difficult concepts in a much easier way. Meanwhile, I have two questions. 1) How much are you earning with the Youtube Channel now after leaving those A, B, C jobs (assuming that your sharing salary has not been a part of your privacy in this video)? Is it worth leaving a job… Read more »

Chris, thanks for taking your time to reply. Could you please suggest a resource from which I can learn Xcode and Swift the easy way. I mean which explains as simple as you, since I assume you don't have a full course on this, do you?

+Vener Garayev hey Vener, let's just say that I'm earning less but also working a lot less. I'm not confident that I could make a lot of money on the App Store but I haven't given it an honest try. I feel like it's difficult but that statement isn't based on experience so that it lightly. Hard to say about how much time it would take but I would set expectations that the first few apps won't be very professional. Once you get a few under your belt, I'm sure you'll see that with each app you release, it's better… Read more »
