Hello there

Australia is a great country and you have made a wise choice choosing your future here. Although there are some things you have to know before you commit yourself.

1. Australia is an expensive place when you begin so make sure you save enough money to start here.

2. Visa process are getting complex by the day and read the Australian immigration website very well regarding the visa you will be applying.

3. Before you apply i believe you have to take the IELTS and Skill assessment through recognized assessment centers here.

All the information you need can be found in this forum, immigration website or other sources. So do your research well before you start spending money.

The are jobs in demand for analyst programmers & software engineers, you'll need to apply for an ENS or skilled migrant type visa, you'll need to get at least 60 points & satisfy the English criteria.

Also, you'll need to get your skills assessed by the Australian Computer Society. If you haven't got the funds to be out of work for an unspecified amount of time, you're best to secure a job before you arrive.

Goodluck with migration prospects.

As the guy just said above, first you must find a category that most suit to your professional activity on SOL list. Probably it will be something like Analist Programmer. Then you have to do the assesment by ACS. I'm doing it too and the steps are quite easy and it's clearly explained on the internet. Finally you can apply for PR using your ACS approval. Just be careful because there are several kinds of visas. You must read all and chose the best one for you.
Good luck

About the IELTS:
You don't neer it for ACS' assessment but you need to apply for your visa. Actually, you must to get 5 to start the process. The rule:
Less than 5: you can't apply for
Between 5 and 6: you can apply but without extra points
More than 7: you get 10 points

I lived in Perth for 8 months.
The classical answer would be "depends on your stile of life", but I think I can say that Perth isn't an expensive city. I would live there again with AU$ 1500 per month (sharing a house)
But the negative point is there are less jobs there than in Sidney.
I would like to know about the costs in sidney too... I intend to move there
