Hello everyone, I'm from Brazil, and I'm looking forward to lean a new
language to work with.

Ruby is my choice! :-D

What is the salary average for Ruby programmers? (rookie, normal,
Ho pays the best salary? (country)
I plan to work outside Brazil... Which country is adopting best the Ruby

Here in Brazil, the things is a little slow... The servers are adopting
language on this year, but it still slow... The business on São Paulo
still on Java, Delphi, VB and so on... (desktop environment) and ASP,
Flex, Java (web environment).

I have already good experience on Delphi (6 years) and PHP (4 years).

Are you asking this from a Ruby on Rails perspective or a purely Ruby
perspective? At work I use Ruby on Rails which means that I must know at
least a little Ruby, but my skills could be better when it comes to
Ruby. Since you mentioned PHP, Flex, etc., I assume you are asking about
web development jobs? If that is the case then Ruby on Rails is up and
coming and has a lot of people talking. If you become a good Rails
programmer then jobs should be plentiful and you should be able to find
jobs in just about any country. As for pure ruby...I don't know how
plentiful jobs are, but I will say that to me Ruby seems like a very
powerful language, one that I am very impressed with, but then again I
do have a lot to learn about Ruby.

Not sure I answered your question but here is a website that will be
more informative:

Good luck,

Thanks for the answers!

Well, the way i see here in Brazil, is that there are two types of
1º one on freelancers and standalone services (In here, RoR is getting
better and better every day...) but the 2º, the companies, are not
this technology so well, and that is what really pays the salary...

Here in São Paulo, PHP still the dominant language.

Is there any information / graphics of the adoption or the growing of
RoR on
Shandy Nantz and Keburgett, wich state or country are u from?
