What is the average salary for Perl programmers in 2020?

If I have no definitive answer on this, the Business Insider has some insights:

HackerRank polled 116000 developers about their salaries and got interesting results:

  • Perl is associated with an average global salary of $84,025.50 (54.2% higher than the global average salary)
  • Scala is associated with an average global salary of $77,159.60
  • Go is associated with an average global salary of $72,691.30
  • Python is associated with an average global salary of $56,670.90
  • JavaScript is associated with an average global salary of $55,690

Without more information about the polled panel it's hard to state this results as “Truth” but they seems to confirm personal beliefs:

  • The salary is more linked to the scarsity of resources than to the trendyness of the associated technology.
  • Perl resources are less and less available.

You know what ? It's good to be a Perl programmer :-)
