In Topic: Salary expectations when relocating to other countries

Yesterday, 01:43 AM

The problem is you can't just say the average in Gemany is figure A and that is below what I earn in Israel.   The salary ranges can vary massively across whole countries so much so that the city you are applying in could be well above the average.
I'm in the UK for example and work in London and most jobs I get have a salary between £75k to £85k with contract rates at about £450 per day.  In Manchester however I could only expect £30k to £45k for doing the same job.

According to develop the average UK game dev salary is £32k whilst the average software developer outside of games is £45k but, I already know that there is an almost limitless number of jobs paying double this amount in London.

Instead of looking what the average is in Germany you should look at what the average is at the actual company you are interviewing at.  There must be reviews on sites like Glassdoor where previous staff have reviewed the company and detailed the salaries that they have earned.

I actually think this could be a valid way to weed out good and bad candidates depending on the job they were recruiting for.

It sure beats the hell out of a startup I worked at a few years ago which used a candidates Klout Score https://klout.com/home to judge weather or not people were good candidates for programming and design roles.

The device supports compilation from other languages, including C++, but it is more effort. It also needs some bindings between the languages, and debugging is not friendly.


Or you can use a third party SDK such as Cocos2dX, Marmalade or Gameplay3D that will let you develop in C++ with a lot less pain.

It depends on the country.  In the UK usually yes.   In the US most likely no.  But like Ashaman says consult a lawyer.

I wasn't trying to make the point of it being legal or not just that it is very unlikely that you will get into much trouble downloading rom.  Also that in Europe at least the big companies have stopped going after individuals for downloading and instead are going after the sites that make the media available.   And also forcing ISPs to block access to sites where they are unable to prosecute the owner due to international jurisdiction.
For example today it was announced on the BBC that "The Publishers Association" have forced Google to remove 1.7 million links to pirated ebooks.
