    A web tool to look up rates for coders by area? Is there one?

    I am thinking about doing it as a project if one doesn't exist. If the question isn't clear, what I'm thinking of is a simple site where some coder can go look up contractor rates by area/title: The user enters their area, the rate they are getting paid, and some title or job like "PHP Development", and they get back the rest of the rates for "PHP Development" for that area.

    I am hoping it exists, does anyone know of such a site? If it doesn't, I'm considering putting something like that together. I would use it myself, as a freelance coder, and I think it could be quite useful to the coder community in general.

    Also, first post! Hi all, I was pleased to find this forum. I searched around and found a few other coding forums, but they were less active (it seemed). Not that it seems hopping around here, but I can see activity.

    I think I’ve seen sites like this before. But the real problem is: where do you get the data about rates in the first place and how do you determine the right job descriptions? For example something like “web design” or “web development” are very broad terms and everybody has their own perception.

    If such a tool existed for your area, what's to say it's accurate? Or that it's current? Maybe some people just don't identify as a web designer but can still do what you seek. Better to find them through different means.

    I agree with the previous answers. You sound like you have some ambition to create a website. You should look for a different project to work on.
