"Oh look, I can change my ill thought out, sub literate post and make all those that corrected me look like idiots." FTMFW!
Is it wrong of me to find that funny in a good way?
Sorry - spelling correction:- it's 'irritate'.
...we're parasitic scum that exploit the poor, but we're COOL parasitic scum.
How can an iOS developer earn £48,957 yet an iPhone / iPad developer only earns £40,647 when they're the same thing?
Your average recruitment agent doesn't know his R from his Oracle (or iOS or Java or Python). They just do keyword-matching on CVs as well as filtering out the liars and charlatans and cowboy coders. Can't blame them really: their job is mainly about having people skills and negotiating skills, not techie stuff.
They ask people what they do and what they earn, or scour advertised jobs and rates... hence these discrepancies happen all the time and as such the figures should be taken with a pinch of salt.
Ha ha ha ha ha! Now that is funny.
Where do these people get these fictional numbers from?
It's in London. Jobs pay more in London.
£50k is not enough for having to suffer London.
I thought London too, but the column header clearly says "Average UK salary".
I'm sorry but there is no way on this earth that anyone is paying new graduates that amount of money. They may have a degree but they do not yet know anything about business, how to practically apply their technical skills or how to deal with people. Most of them have never shown any interest in anything outside of their degree course.
So an average salary of £40k is just pure fiction. I work in graduate recruitment for a top 10 UK university and in our books they are doing pretty well if they can command half of that; that is if they don't have to go and work in a supermarket after they graduate. Even PhDs would be pretty ambitious to be looking at this level for a first job - lecturing roles start at around £30k but they usually do a few years purely in research first.
Oh I missed that. However the national average is totally distorted by London prices since not only are prices higher, but the density of developers is much higher too.

Is there no English word for "someone who gets paid for knowing what he/she is doing"?
There may be several, but there's not much call for them around Shoreditch these days.
I'm sorry I only have one thumbs-up to give
