The six best-paid IoT programming languages
Go: Solid tech stack to power complex IoT networks
Go is an open source programming language that was created at Google. Although it cannot boast the same widespread use as the languages, we focused on previously, it is a powerful technology on which to build a communication layer within your IoT system.
Concurrency and the ability to run a number of processes (data input and output) simultaneously are the main benefits of the Go language with regard to the IoT. This makes it easier to build complex IoT networks consisting of multiple sensors and devices.
Although it has been named the top paying technology in the United States (according to the latest StackOverflow Developer Survey), the average Go salary in the United States is quite moderate – around $73k, compared to $43k in the United Kingdom.
As there is not enough data on Go developer salaries worldwide, we will focus on salaries in the United States and the United Kingdom, the countries with the largest number of Go developers, according to the recent survey.

Highly skilled Go developers in the United States can expect to earn up to $140k – almost three times as much as junior-level Go programmers and twice as much as senior Go developers in the United Kingdom.

As we can see, salaries for developers of the hottest programming languages in the IoT can vary greatly, and depend on a number of key aspects. To make sense of this information, it is important to see a bigger picture and to be able to identify existing market trends.
To find the perfect fit in the IoT industry, it is vital to understand the current market trends and price your services accordingly.
