hourly fee of a programmer ?

I've worked with consultants from some of the Big 5 firms(2 of which you mention). Most couldn't program a "Hello World" application. They will bill you ~$200/hour and up to watch them generate lots of useless documentation, go over budget and schedule and then eventually be removed from the project.

On the other hand I have 7 years of VB experience, have an actual CS degree and will only bill you $100/hr. Depending on the level of expertise you need you can get a decent VB contractor for ~$80/hour.

Reality Check: Printouts I have seen from MANY computer service providers suggest a Visual Basic (or C++) Programmer should earn $35-$65/hr depending on experience. A client billing rate for that same individual averages $65-#125/hr. + expenses (for traveling consultants). I would think the $200.00/hr suggested as an average in Answer 1 is a pipe dream. One can easily make $100K+/yr earning $50-$60/hr. with a lot of time off.
