Nicely done. This is useful to gauge salary levels in your current company and also what companies in similar domain are paying in the area.

There is another website http://dolstats.com/ that gathers data from PERM applications. I've found it useful for comparing salaries when looking for new job.

I've read couple of Effective C++ series books by him and I've found Effective STL to be the most useful book for my day-to-day C++ programming at work.

Alternative would be AeroFS (https://aerofs.com/) which also does P2P file sync.

Kind of a pig for resources though

Kudos for a post focusing on startup employees and not founders!

India and China are vast countries, the diversity should also take into account population/area of the country on which limits are enforced.

-----


It is a bit ridiculous that Iceland and China have the same caps.

-----


The diversity argument is turned on its head - esp. when there is legislation to legalize "illegal/undocumented" workers who are mostly from Latin America and primarily from Mexico. Indians are not even 1% of US population. The Green Card caps per country is absolute joke.

-----


Is there an overview of what the per-country caps are, and how long someone from a given country might expect to wait until they get a green card?

-----


Applicants from any single 'country of chargeability' cannot exceed 7% of the total number of available employment-based green cards in a year [1].

In practice, someone from Iceland or Tuvalu can get an EB (category 2) visa in about a year, whereas the average for someone from India or China is more like 5-6 years [2].

[2] These rough numbers are from observations on http://www.trackitt.com, where applicants self-report application statistics

In which we learn that there is not such thing as non-bias. Whether de facto or de jure, there are always biases. Either a person chooses them, or nature chooses them. There is no universally "fair" distribution over a scarce commodity.

It is not clear to me how having a diverse country that is not dominated by immigrants from one or two ethnicities arrives from letting this happen. Or how it is fair to the guy from random tiny country X when he has to compete against two largest sources of immigrants to this country.

Compete for what?

Cloudera has some of the best talent in distributed systems in the valley. Nice to see enterprise tech company grabbing one of the largest private financing round.
