its not just aobut any soft dev just about being self employed in general. germany is a hostile environment for self employment cause of taxes, health insurance, laws and regulations. they basically treat you like a major company and demand you adhere to the same shit they have to do and crack down on you instead of the big companies. they want you to be a good wage slave that pays his taxes in the most transparent way

>side income
germany especially decentivizes any second income stream cause its one of the countries societal goals that people should only have 1 Job to sustain themselves. its often worse for you cause you get taxed higher if you have a 2nd job that pays more than a few bucks. thats why this country doesnt have a "gig" economy like the US. Uber doesnt exist or all those other type of gig jobs you can do in the US to up your income for example. instacart or whatver the fuck. any "gig" style job doesnt really exist here cause the entire tax system is too much for it to allow for such jobs.

Dutch bro here. The Dutch tech sector is totally cucked and basically carried by Assimil. Go to Eindhoven and you will see pajeets everywhere. Why? Because the pathetic wages cannot attract Ameribro talent (except low tier programmers that come on a 30% ruling) where average payment in the tech industry is order of magnitudes higher.

Inb4 taxes. The wages netto are a meme. This is why Europe will be left behind. Anyone of talent that isn't attracted to this cold swampland will be exported to Silicon Valley, London, or Seattle.

Don't get me wrong. Coding is largely a working class job for brainlets of middling IQ. You need a few high IQers pulling strings and working on tough theoretical issues, but most of coding can be done by someone with the logical capabilities of a home electrician (not talking shit, it's a good job and does take some basic smarts).

1. Nobody cares about your degree here, I've interviewed/hired people with the following degrees: finance, math, statistics, biology, philosophy, physics, comp sci, and all variety of engineering)
2. Image matters in the investment world. Shower, get your suit tailored, and get a good haircut (go to a stylist and ask them for their input)

3. Presentation skills are where you make your bread. Everyone applying is smart, with the hard skills to do the job, you need to show that you will be the best of that group at office politics and presentation. 99% of your work is useless if you can't translate it into a low level for management. I hate self-help, but reading Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends and Influence People could help if you are really socially awkward. (I can elaborate on social business skills if you want.)

4. If you want to go into backend engineering in shit like high frequency trading, market making, risk modeling, etc. you will need to be a top 10-5% programmer. You need to be able to write performance C/C++ that incorporates streaming data. Get really deep in algorithms so you have a ton of options to implement and test for speed.

Maybe in the Bay Area - for the rest of the 80% of tech industry workers that aren't in SF, the starting salary is much closer to 45k USD.

I make low six-figs outside the Bay Area, and I'm finding it hard to leave my company, because so much of the rest of the industry is paying shit.

I use public transport to get to work which is subsidised by the state, so it costs me all of 180 eur/month. And I can listen to podcasts or read a book while commuting, or even shitpost on 4chan, it is not lost time.

If you've ever had a company hire freelance devs from the third world, you'd know how the management team go from "we're brilliant, this will save tens of thousands" to "oh holy shit these retarded pajeets don't know anything"
You can hire them, but you'll be receiving the most inane spaghetti unmaintanable bullshit you've ever seen.
If there's a wrong way to do anything, they'll find it and do it.
Any company that knows that good devs are worth the money is the ones you should be looking at.

This is some cold hard facts.
FAGMANs only pay so much because they steal each others' employees by tempting them with more money and they've got the cash to hire them on basically whatever salary they like.
Outside of the US where the FAGMAN influence is significantly less, the money is still top-tier, really only surpassed by top of the line doctors and maybe lawyers, but software engineering is definitely the best option of this bunch, as both of those have you competing and working crazy long hours. At least medicine is somewhat rewarding work, law seems designed to crush souls and create dull lifeless husks of people.

Yep, just like finance. The system chews you up and spits you out on your ass. The like 10% who don't get absolutely fucked by the system make a lot, but at the cost of most of their life and destroys any passions, hobbies, friends, romantic life, etc.
Law will treat you as a peon for decades before letting you do anything of any real value.

In Poland - given its low cost of living - being a webdev feels like cheating.

1. For the period of you being at uni (but not later than 26 years of age) you pay no personal income tax unless you cross the second tax bracket of 85K PLN. Whatever you make over 85K PLN is taxed at 32%. During uni most people work on a contract, and you don't pay for health insurance since you're a student. So for that period, brutto = netto.

2. After 2-3 years of experience you start crossing the 2nd tax bracket and you're probably finishing up your degree. This is the time where some people start 1-person company and sign a contract with one company and just work full time under that. You can make eg. 17k PLN/mo brutto and take home 12k PLN netto/mo - that's more than double the national average.

In a small city, a post-soviet apartment costs 250k PLN. Something more modern and spacious is 450k - this is ~5+ years of savings to buy an apartment with cash.

Pretty sure globally there are better places than this, but comparing to non-programmers in Poland who can save 1-2k/mo and need to take a 20 year long mortgate it's just straight up cheating.

Now that 1 EUR = ~4.6 PLN (price record) and the govt is going to release their "Polish New Order" plan it's less so, but so far it's been good.

For context: I only ever worked in Poland. I assume you're just looking for your first gig. At this moment in life it's really hard to say "fuck it" and just move to eg. Germany, because you have zero work experience - so zero stability or confidence that you'll manage.
It'll probably take a few months to even get an internship in Poland. Abroad I assume it'll be the same, but you'll also have to pay for an apartment, stay alive etc.
Unless there's something that really makes you want to leave, the more comfortable approach is to get maybe 2 years of experience here to get on your feet then think about moving abroad then. People start caring about you when you have like +1 year exp. It's much easier when you have a steady stream of offers coming in on linkedin + 50k PLN in the bank.
