Wondering if there are job openings somewhere along the I-4 Corridor (a preference, not a requirement).

Will provide resume if asked

It's not pretty. I live in Boston and just came back from two pitches
in that area (Lake Mary/Heathrow/Sanford). These were with two small
VC funded startups in the area one with a medical application the other
with a financial services application.
I was fully prepared to underbid, just to get some work since I have an
offer to stay at someones house down there for free for several months.
I lost the Financial services bid to someone with Series 7, Series 6x
credentials who was a SW developer from NJ. The medical application folks
had a guy from India they talked to after me who had an established team
in Chennai. They went with him despite my willingness to run low on the bid
and put in rigid deliverables milestones into a sliding payment schedule.
It's ugly out there. You need to run with a cohesive team (pack-up like
wolves) if you want work right now.

Story like this gets better after being told a few times. Or maybe it's just a tiny ad:
