Hello everyone, asking for your help with something (a question).

A friend of mine's son has been offered an entry-level/internsh­ip 
position with a PHP shop that is moving to Rails.  He doesn't have a CS 
degree, but has a BA in Cognitive Science (related to user interface 
design) from UC Berkeley, and was a customer support tech at Google for 
five years right out of UC Berkeley.  He's teaching himself web 
programming, and is very sharp - he just developed, and is selling, an 
iPhone app using appcelerator, a platform that uses a JavaScript API to 
build native mobile apps.

My question is: what do you think would be a typical starting salary for 
such an entry level/internship position in a PHP shop moving to Rails, 
for someone with his sort of background?

Thanks very much, any ideas would be greatly appreciated.
