Jonathan Hill has taken an interesting perspective in his recent post looking more at some of the average financial costs around being a web developer.
With Software Development topping 2014′s top jobs list, I thought I would share how much it cost me to become a web developer, and what my monthly expenses look like nowadays.
He breaks it down into a few different categories, listing an average price for each:
- Initial (start-up) costs for hardware and software
- Training costs
- Recurring costs
Obviously, not all of the software and tools he lists are needed for every software developer, but it does give some perspective. Thankfully, he also links to some free alternatives to the tools he mentions that can reduce these costs as well.
