.NET? I thought we were talking IT here, not service companies for businesses.

How much demand do you think there is in Silicon Valley or Berlin for .NET tinkerers?

As for DBAs, are we talking someone who contributes patches to PostgreSQL or has founded a couple of Elastic Search start-ups, or someone who is entrusted with admin credentials into Oracle or MS SQL Server (or whatever it's called).

Did you read with the other guy said about keeping your skills up to date?
