I perform Django consultation, but 1) I don't live in Salt Lake anymore, and
2) I've been extremely busy at my full-time job.
I'd like to forward a different theory: Python programmers seem, generally,
to be an experienced bunch. This means that they're probably already
employed, whether full-time, or too many contracts in the queue. I take
applications for C#, Python, and PHP programmers, and I wouldn't hesistate
to say that nearly 90% of the resumes I get for the Python focused jobs are
profoundly more qualified than the PHP resumes, and to a lesser extent,
C#. If you post a PHP job, you'll often get a beginner developer, who,
with the deceptive ease it takes to learn PHP, believes they're qualified
for an entry-level web development job, and an experienced programmer.
That's my experience. Just sayin'.
