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!

I take it Boston's weather wouldn't be good enough? :-) Lots of opportunities, though, and a nice area to live.

Dallas and LA would be right out for me due to quality of living concerns, but everyone's got their own priorities in that regard.

Both Boston and NYC have a lot of demand for Java professionals.

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..

I've lived in Austin for going on 11 years now. Can't recommend it highly enough.

Do not lump Austin in with Dallas. Night and day.
