    is the IT market dead in the water?

    Just finished a python contract, but there seem to be very few python contracts at the moment.

    Anyone else have thoughts or impressions on the current state of the IT contracting market generally?

    Normally it is boring on here when everyone is busy in contracts, and conversely buzzing when the market is dead so more of us are on the bench and have time to post shyte on here! But currently it seems pretty sedate on here as well, so I'm seeing mixed signals

          Are you still putting your CUK profile on your CV? Nobody wants to hire pro-Putin developers right now.

            No Data science or Azure those are popular?

              I will make the first non silly reply.

              Python is super hot in the Data Science / Machine Learning world.

              So if you are a reasonable Python Developer, have a masters degree in mathematics, know all the usual stuff like PyTorch, TensorFlow, Apache Spark and Jupyter notebooks, you are never going to spend a minute on the bench.

              Outside of that, I expect the work has gone to the usual lowest bidders in India.
              I design idiot proof software. Trouble is, they keep making better idiots.

                    I have already given 2 non-silly replies. There are jobs out there for people with Python skills.
