Unregistered what no one tells you in this kind of stats, is the plateau and stagnation. Have you ever seen anyone cite salaries about 5 years? its becuse after that your salary stagnates till you retire. This industry is like footballer career, high pay for young, decreasing over the years above 5 years.

It depends on the skills, experience, and lication

Salaries are very very different. According to Glassdoor, a Silicon-Valley-based senior can charge make up to $120,000/yr. But a junior from Mexico makes almost 10 times less - $13,500/yr. The skills are also important:
DevOps Engineer $130,000
Embedded Software Developer $82,000
CRM developer $77,000
Mobile application development $73,000
ERP solution development $69,000
(The salaries are for the USA).

However, from recent news of honestbee (which pay really well) you have to be prepared to have no pay since most of these companies stay afloat from their fundings not profit.

It is similar to the construction industry. If you are just the builder aka contruction worker for software, there is no way you can get such pay. You have to have the architect skills and problem solving skills.

India produce lots of software developer but most of them are construction level skill. So if you are at that skill level, you have lots of competition hence your pay won't be high.

Hypothetically speaking yes, but what skillset warrant a 20% jump? Its either the person is really good at what he does or his skillset is super in demand.

For example, he said there is a developer who had no programming degree/background and commands a salary of $6.5k per month after 2 years into the industry. There is another developer who had 4 years experience and is now drawing close to $10k per month. Is this normal? How did these people manage to convince the company to pay them that much?
