The IT Job Market

The rise and decline of Java/C++ programmers

This are US figures, yeah, but more or less the same is happening this side of the pond. Computer Weekly was down to two pages of non-public sector jobs last week. The number of my ex-colleagues out of work is truly frightening.

At least my project is making money. There is some reassurance in that.

But will the market pick up again? I think so, but not just yet, and not to the level that it reached during the golden years of the late nineties. CEOs are looking for dead-cert projects these days.
