For the most part and at least in this area, jobs in the software industry are plentiful, companies have plans to hire more, and contracts are not drying up. But when I see articles like this, I start to wonder if the software industry really is doing okay.
At the same time, there are some noticeable changes due to the economy - much less shopping in stores, much less dining in restaurants, and - being in Central Florida - much less tourism. So something is going on out there, but perhaps the software industry isn't feeling it yet. Maybe? It's too difficult to tell with my small sample size.
So, any readers willing to help expand my little survey and let me know where you're located and what you're seeing in regards to the economy and software? Are companies still hiring? Is there still a demand in your area for software? Does anyone anticipate a downturn or is it all good times?
