The Highest-Paying Programming Languages

Folks,

Computer programming has quickly become one of the most lucrative industries in the US.
The average salary for a computer programmer just hit an all-time high as it approaches $100,000.

But there are some languages and skill sets that are more valuable than others, and Quartz has compiled some data to break down these differences.

Quartz's Max Nisen pulled out some figures on the most valuable programming languages based on a larger study from the Brookings Institution that was published in July.

Based on that data, here are programming languages listed next to their average annual salary from lowest to highest:

12. PERL - $82,513
11. SQL - $85,511
10. Visual Basic - $85,962
9. C# - $89,074
8. R- $90,055
7. C - 90,134
6. JavaScript - $91,461
5. C++ - $93,502
4. JAVA - $94,908
3. Python - $100,717
2. Objective C - $108,225
1. Ruby on Rails - $109,460

While some of these coding languages can help you earn $100,000, train to become a Salesforce architect if you want one of the highest-paying jobs in tech.

According to data from IT recruiting firm Mondo that was published in March, Salesforce Architects can earn between $180,000 and $200,000.

Note: Programmer's salary is not based on language but the skills, that one acquires over the time period by solving challenging brain teasing logical problems or some of the most complex system architecture problems. There are data analyst's who earn $120K+ using statistical language like R, along with python and java. It all depends upon the domain area you chose, right now big data is one of the most promising field for earning big bucks.
