Thx for answering Flurbius. Yes, jobs here don't pay too well. The best model is to live in TW and work remote with European or US customers. You could charge customers less then western rates, and still make a decent living.
I have done a little bit of JS/CSS but have more experience with C#, Java, php and SQL.
Don't have any direct use for those languages right now, but that might come up over the next year. I started the thread to get an idea of prices for remote programers who live in Taipei if I wanted to hire locally part time.
If anyone wanted to start working remote right now, Upwork is OK as a start. There are some clowns on there, but you can still find good people if you keep your wits about you. You would be competing with lots of low-priced developing world programmers, but you can differentiate yourself just by being punctual, professional and honest. If Upwork was too flaky for an experienced programmer, there are more and more remote jobs on Stack Overflow every day. Or Toptal if you're good enough...
