Angular Developer Salaries Around the World

The initial release of the Angular web framework was known as AngularJS, with the “JS” representing JavaScript. Unfortunately, Google made some mistakes with the first version of Angular. To simplify things, instead of naming the current version Angular 2 or 2.0+, they simply referred to it as Angular.

Angular is a highly sought-after web framework, and for a good reason. As the third most popular framework according to the latest StackOverflow survey, it follows only the well-established jQuery and the widely-used React.js. The key factor behind Angular’s popularity is TypeScript, a language that extends JavaScript. TypeScript is well-loved by developers and ranked #2 in the same survey. Its compatibility with JavaScript and its strict architecture and error handling make it a programmer’s favorite. The error-checking feature, especially important for production software, helps ensure bugs are caught and fixed quickly.

The salaries for Angular developers differ significantly across job boards. This disparity may be due to the fact that some positions require experience with the outdated Angular JS framework, while others require expertise in the more recent Angular 2.0+. Once Angular JS reaches its end-of-life, no further updates or bug fixes will be made.
