Snow Effect in Google+ Photo

I didn't know Google+'s Auto Awesome mode does snow effects too. It was a pleasant surprise to find out what it did to a picture I took recently. It would make a good x-mas card :)

How Much Canadian Programmers Make

I didn't know that Canada government publishes the salary survey information for programmers until today. But here it is.. this shows how much we, Canadian programmers, make for each region.

This shows low, median, high hourly wages and the data is pretty up-to-date. (for example, BC stat is from 2011-2012). To calculate the annual salary out of this, simply use this formula:

hourly wage * 40 (hr/wk) * 52 (wk) = 

Alberta, the oil nation, comes in first, followed by BC and ON. If you are my neighbour living in BC, you should make:

  • low: $44,990
  • median: $79,997
  • high: $131,997

So are you making enough? :P
