Is that commonplace in Singapore? But even if that's the case, they are living with a comfortable salary no? Hmm... maybe I should go and research on their end game salary.

Alot of fake people in tech.
This is so true. My friends are entering (not sure how they got passed the interview stage) the IT industry with zero experience, and till date still barely learning anything or simply winging it.

That's what everyone thinks. Programming is not just about coding and coding, it's more like project management. There's always that fluff part which does not require so much technical knowledge.

life hacks man.

If you are fine with earning <10k doing work that basically requires you to constantly be updated (programming languages/different software vers etc) when you have >10/20/30 years of experience, sure.

That is under the assumption that demand is still more than supply & your work cannot be outsourced to India.
