    I do honestly feel like we as developers are reasonably well off though.

    I mean there are better paying careers, but in terms of effort vs returns, a tech career almost feels like a cheat code.

    I've tutored a few people through JS bootcamp courses, and while it doesn't immediately net you 100k/y, I have seen a few people go from €20k minimum wage to €35k junior dev jobs — and got feedback like "if I had known that basic programming skills were within reach all this time, I would've started earlier"

    1. Carefully, I repeat, CAREFULLY poke a few recruiters

    2. Gently shake if they don't wake up yet

    3. Softly whisper a list of your skills at them, and tell them you are currently earning 1.5x your actual salary.

    4. If at any point you find that more than 3 recruiters are suddenly gazing at you with their cold soulless eyes, break your phone in half, delete your LinkedIn, set your house on fire and run for your life.
