You should only go to Germany if you are a low-qualification worker. Workers with a high qualification are second class citizens and pay HUGE taxes. The top 10% of people in Germany with highest salaries pay 50% of all social contributions! Comparing to UK or United States, software developers in Germany earn much much less money and need to learn German and it is a very difficult language. Do you want to waste 5 years of your life to learn another language that will not give you any advantage salary-wise?
