For developer salaries, the last five years have brought good news and not so good news.

The not so good news is that developer salaries have not trended straight up. There’s been some bouncing around – some job titles haven’t fared spectacularly well, with some developers’ pay largely flat.

On the good news front, developer salary levels – based on data from Janco Associates – demonstrate that creating code remains a lucrative profession. Compared with many jobs across the working world, skilled developers bring home a nice slice of bacon.

Bottom line: Even with threats from recession and outsourcing, being a developer is still a good way to earn a living.
