As the title says, I'm curious which programming language will get you the most nicely paid.

Is it "the hot stuff" like Java/.NET, or "legacy stuff" like COBOL/RPG?

Or assembly?
I don't know. I think assembly programming jobs are rare these days.

Maybe someone has some sort of statistics?

umm... HTML technically is not a programming language, right?

It is a scripted language.
I would still call it programming though.
We used to write it by hand but now all these editors make us dumb.
Anyway, would you let that guy code some HTML on your PC?
I think i would buy him a cheeseburger and let him save his coding skills for someone else.

well, i think, if you are "best" in one particular programming language, you would be paid "nice".

coz, sometime, i saw some resume, they put they knew VB, .NET, JAVA, FOTRAN, JavaScript, PHP and a lot more.

but in reality, they know a little bit of each language. so, how would their employer pay them high?

i think, if one person excel in one particular language (let say mainstream and popular programming language), they sure would get high pay.

Yes asm does get the highest pay, but unfortunately it's also rare BECAUSE of that -- money doesn't grow in trees and people are fired all over the place, so it's hard to find someone who wants asm because he may not be willing to get that much out of his pocket.

C(++) is still very popular though and nice pay.
Usually just because you KNOW asm can get you a higher pay even if you code in C(++) Very Happy

I think more jobs want C/C++/C# skills Razz though, Although I think My uncle said
they Use Assembly to program there digital cameras at Kodak...

If I was this guy, I would make games and sell them, even if they do launch in your browser.

No doubt about that. We were talking about highest paying, not popular. Highest paying also means they're rare.

Most money nowadays is made of bits. Bits which are handled by programs written in assembly, or by programs written in something that was written in assembly, or by programs written in something that was written in something that was written in assembly.

I think the most nicely paid programming language could be any.
It depends only what you do with this programming lang, how it is useful for your job, and many things...

For example: I programmed web sites for agencies in my last work, and i was very nicely paied.
After i was programming in Assembly for Programmable Logical Controllers (PLC) and also it was nicely paid.

A cool thing could be if FASM may support differents CPU instructions sets only using differents macros.
For example: if i want to assemble a Motorola processor compatible program i have to include (ipotetical) MOTOROLA.INC file.
Is it a good idea?

No, i just know Fasm ARM.
Fasm ARM is a good program like FASM.

I only told:
If possible create MACROS (placed into specific files) that let FASM (original) to assemble in any instruction set the MACRO wants.

In the ARM case:
To use FASM (original) with an ARM source file (included an ipotetical "ARM language macros.inc") and assemble the ARM output without using different assembler.

The same with others target CPU instructions sets, if possible.

This is only to make FASM more versatile...

Can't you already do that with the db directive in macros?

E.G.

macro ARMOpcode{
db $OpcodeEncodingGoesHere
}

I think yes, but i have to learn the specific ARM opcodes.
Also i haven't many practice using FASM macros, infact i don't use other macros but the win32a.inc file ones when creating PE.

Someone that can use macros could do this job better than me, so these files can be shared in this board.
If the argument wasn't the macros, then i had no problems to program it.
