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 and

So if you know asp.net c# wish you did a video for folks that know that and want to learn an Apple app. Would be helpful. I know asp.net c#' C, and many mainframe languages and want a quick lesson on an iOS app.

Interesting story. I graduated 1 year ago-ish, and chose to work at a startup as I also want to be an entrepreneur. Although, I feel I made the wrong decision as I haven't gained much here, and spend A LOT of time working, since it's a startup. 😕

Hey Aqib, it's strange but i've come to believe that no experience is a wasted one because all of my failed side hustles in school and failed entrepreneurship attempts have given me lessons learned that contributed to the success i've had so far with CodeWithChris! So you never know what you might take out of your startup experience!
