I am currently in the Sacramento California area. The job market here these days is not exactly hot. It used to be pretty good, but it is pretty slow now. I am in the middle of looking for a new job and I am thinking of relocating to a better job market. What do you suggest?
Currently on my radar is on Los Angeles, the Silicon Valley, Dallas, Austin or possibly the Seattle Area. I would like to go somewhere where the Java market is good (obviously), where the weather is generally good, and is a good place to raise a family.
All of them have their pluses and minuses. Silicon Valley = great job market, horrible trafic and cost of living. Seattle = great job market, terribly weather. LA = great job market, also horrible traffic. Austin & Dallas = Good job market, good traffic, great cost of living, etc.
Any feedback about the places I listed or any others I didn't for that matter would help out a lot. Thanks!
Based on past searches long ago; Atlanta and North Carolina "triangle area" had a lot of IT employment. Within Florida, I saw a relatively lot of developer jobs in Orlando and Ft Lauderdale. Unclear of actual size of Java market in those areas..
