 Re?2?: Availablity ads a sign of weakness or strength?


     As a Smalltalker, I certainly hope not!  However, my company has been
     looking for more developers for quite awhile and only got only 2 responses
     for Sr. Developers/Framework-Application Architects.  As for junior
     developers, we are almost giving up and have been looking into immersion
     training for newly-minted grad types.

     So for better or worse, I would think that Smalltalkers are still in great
     demands for the usual reasons.  THIS IS NOT A STATEMENT TO START A FLAME


     ?My opinions are my own, not those of Medicus and are usually not very
     worthwhile... ;) ?

On the other hand, I am not seeing any great volume of posts to
offering jobs or contracts.  So far, Java is mostly being used to build web
pages, not so much for in-house client-server applications.
