3. Developer salary comparison by countries and programming languages (Python, Ruby & PHP)

Shall we compare salaries by country and programming languages that are popular in back-end development? It's Python, Ruby, and PHP. Look at Graph 3 and consider Ruby; here's an unusual moment - Ruby developers cost more in the UK than Python, for example. But if we concentrate on another country, we can see that Ruby's bar is lower than the others. It happens with all programming languages today. In every country, different programmers needed. Ukrainian developers' salaries are changing regarding programming languages too, but in comparison by other countries will be cost-efficient for a long time.
