I have a question dear BYOND community, since when did BYOND programmers want 15$ an hour to 30$ an hour for programming without any actual degrees in programming?
I am currently going to college for a Software Developer, I just started my second year, I am progressing very nicely. I have got a few internship offers who are willing to pay me and they are offering 15$ an hour. Granted I have a year on my belt and I have shown I am quite good at what I do.
Now tell me why exactly these 20-25 year old BYOND programmers are charging 15$-30$ and hour without any degrees? Its laughable.
Lets look at Avidanimefan, shall we?
He charges 15$ an hour+ He has no degrees, nothing. I even found out he doesnt even have an actual job. And he is trying to charge THAT much. For a single system(Pretty complex in some areas but in most basic) he wanted at least 50 dollars. This job would take at most 2 hours. So he wanted 25$ per hour right there.
People let me tell you, if you ever need someone to do a programming job for you and they want more than 15$ per hour and they dont have ANY certification. Tell them to kick rocks. They are WAYYYY overcharging you for not being certified, as I typing this right now, Avidanimefan is spamming me with ignorant comments.
Apparently 70k a year is poverty advice from Avidanimefan: http://prntscr.com/glbqgy
He doesnt even know numbers, or proper wages. Another piece of advice, dont let someone charge you if they dont even know 70k is WAY over poverty.
Oh and apparently he is better than people who have college degrees in software development. http://prntscr.com/glbsxw
Another piece of advice, if someone is ignorant enough to tell you they are better with someone of degrees. End it there. They clearly dont under stand stuff.
This post is not to hate on one person, but the programmers who seek more money than they are worth. Avid is just an example for the many people out there. If they dont have any certification, dont let them over charge you. You are wasting money you may or may not have.
I am sorry for posting this twice, this is to help others and his screenshots were clouding the thread.
Update: I blocked him on discord he kept messaging me and spamming, got annoying. Check out his post. I dont mind though, at least people have been warned about people similar to Avid.
