Hi All,

I know this topic comes up constantly, but I'm interested in any data
(anecdotal or otherwise) on how difficult (or easy) it is to hire a
good Python web developer in Chicago.


*) How tough is it to hire a Python Django developer?

*) Is it easier (and / or cheaper) to hire a Rails developer?

*) Is it easier (cheaper) to hire a PHP developer?

*) Pretend you're a freelancer, justify writing an web application in
[the python web framework of your choice] to a potential Chicago-land
client that won't use your services for the long term life of the
application.  They want you to write it, and walk away.  How will they
support the app once you've left?

Any thoughts on how to quantify these sorts of questions is welcome


PS. .  Yes, you're doing my homework for me.
