I'm at York University in Toronto, Canada. We have a large
Python-and-Oracle web application written with Pyramids and YUI that we
use to manage the staffing of courses at York and are looking for an
intermediate or senior developer for a 2 year contract to work on
extensions to the application. If you are interested or know of someone
who would be, please e-mail me at prowley at The salary is
approximately $75,000 a year and benefits are excellent. 

We have been looking for someone for this position for a while and are
starting to think about hiring someone who has good programming skills
but not necessarily Python. To that end, if you're a Python developer or
hire them, I'd be interested in your opinion of which common programming
languages that people might know would enable learning Python? I'm
guessing PHP for the dynamic language concepts and Java for the
structure, but that's not based on much evidence. 

Thanks in advance
