Which software will get you the most bang for your buck in 2018?
A new study suggests that most of us are just paying too much for the software that powers the vast majority of our computing systems.
In fact, we pay way too much in fees, costs, and other expenses for a small number of software applications, according to a new report from the Software & Technology Research Institute.
The software-industry research firm surveyed more than 2,000 software developers to see what software companies were charging for their products.
According to a press release from the company, developers were asked to estimate the value of the software they were working on and the costs they were paying for the services they were providing.
Of those surveyed, developers reported spending an average of $19.50 on software development, while paying $22.25 per day, or $8.75 per hour.
The median estimate for developers in the software-development industry is $17.50 per hour, with a median hourly rate of $20.50.
That’s higher than the average hourly rate for software developers in any other industry, which is $14.00 per hour and $15.25.
The median estimate was a little higher than that of software developers surveyed by Adobe Systems, which reported an average hourly fee of $16.00.
The highest median fee for Adobe was $29.00, while the lowest was $8, or an average fee of less than $1 per hour for software development.
The study found that only about 30 percent of developers pay a reasonable fee for their software, which could be due to the cost of software development as well as the costs of other fees.
The remaining 70 percent of the developers surveyed paid an average or high average amount for software services.
The average developer paid an hourly fee ranging from $6.00 to $18.00 on average, and an average charge of $30.00 or more per hour to develop their software.
Software developers were also asked to rate the amount of software they would be willing to buy, which varied depending on the software.
The average price of a $20 software development software project was $20,000.
The report also found that developers were paying an average amount to develop software for a variety of platforms, with 32 percent of software-developer projects in 2018 paying developers an average to develop for iOS, 32 percent for Android, and 28 percent for Windows, macOS, and Linux.
About two-thirds of developers surveyed reported they had more than one platform or platform subcategory in their software projects, with iOS, Android, Windows, and macOS accounting for nearly half of all projects.
The developers surveyed also indicated that they were willing to pay higher fees for their services.
Of the developers, 65 percent reported that they had made a decision to make their software more affordable, and 35 percent had made that decision after considering the value and cost of their services, the study found.
For those developers, the median cost per hour of development was $7.50, and the median hourly fee was $10.00 for the most common services.
Developers also reported that their software was becoming more popular, which increased the average developer cost per development project.
As a result, software developers are paying higher fees in order to build software for the platform they work on, the report found.
Software-developers have to be willing and able to pay the costs associated with developing and maintaining their software applications.
In the software industry, the software development is typically done by a small team of developers.
The researchers believe that developers have to accept higher fees because software development can take years to develop and they have to pay to keep their software up-to-date and maintain.
This results in a large number of developers who have less time to develop a product.
This creates a risk that a product will become obsolete within a few years, the researchers said.
