@Aaronaught, can you say what you brought into your negotiation that got you that 40% raise? What did you have for leverage that you used? Were you willing to walk if you didn't get the raise?

Thanks for the suggestion. Hopefully developing some negotiation skills doesn't require a salesman-type personality to see any results. Though it sounds like those books should apply to most people, including programmers.

How do you make contacts in the industry? Can this be done over the internet with sites like stackoverflow.com, or are you talking about e.g. in-person developer conferences like Microsoft PDC?
