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, expert) Ho pays the best salary? (country) I plan to work outside Brazil... Which country is adopting best the Ruby technology? Here in Brazil, the things is a little slow... The servers are adopting the language on this year, but it still slow... The business on SÃ£o Paulo are still on Java, Delphi, VB and so on... (desktop environment) and ASP, PHP, Flex, Java (web environment). I have already good experience on Delphi (6 years) and PHP (4 years). -- Edson Lopes

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: http://jobs.rubynow.com/ Good luck, -S

Thanks for the answers! Well, the way i see here in Brazil, is that there are two types of bubbles. 1Âº one on freelancers and standalone services (In here, RoR is getting better and better every day...) but the 2Âº, the companies, are not adopting this technology so well, and that is what really pays the salary... Here in SÃ£o Paulo, PHP still the dominant language. Is there any information / graphics of the adoption or the growing of RoR on worldwide? Shandy Nantz and Keburgett, wich state or country are u from?
