More than half of UK devs happy with pay

Develop's survey of 528 UK developers found the average salary on the islands to be £30,442 ($43,087). Although that's a few thousand pounds higher than the average annual salary in the UK, there appear to be significant differences in pay when compared to American counterparts.

Not that it seemed to bother the majority of respondents, as 66 percent stated they were satisfied their salary covered the cost of living. Also interesting is that 67 percent stated their employer provided no training -- sink or swim, baby. Of those looking for a job, 26 percent said their motivation came from not being paid enough, while 50 percent said their boss reminded them of David Brent from The Office (not really).
