How smart are software developers?

It's quite hard getting figures but based on this raw data, it appears that the average IQ of students applying for PhD programmes at good universities in computer science is around 128.

That sounds right to me. Most software development companies don't take people without good first degrees or a higher degree in a STEM subject - and that's just the pool we're talking about here.
