Survey: US Software Developers Expect to Become Millionaires

More than half of US software developers expect to make millions before they retire. This is according to a recent survey of 1,000 U.S.-based software developers about their attitudes regarding their position in business and society, conducted by automation platform vendor Chef. Of those surveyed, 56 percent expect to become millionaires in their lifetime while another 66 percent expect to get raises in 2015. The survey found the respondents to be “well aware of their value in society and extremely optimistic about their future.” Another optimistic finding is that 69 percent of respondents said their jobs were “recession-proof.” The survey, according to Chef, also debunks various stereotypes about software developers. They are socially active and involved in political and civic activities, including as community volunteers. (SlashDot)(Application Development Trends)
