This job opening is not in my division, and I'm not involved with the hiring process. But I wanted to pass it along to anyone interested. The City is hiring a Programmer to write business software. Currently most in-house applications are written with a toolkit called Panther. It doesn't get much simpler than this tool; connect to the database and drop and drag the fields to a screen and then hook up the SQL queries, buttons and logic.
There are pros and cons to working on Government, but it's a very stable work environment and it's fun to be a part of working outside the box with Linux and save lots of money in the process. The job would require living in the area. Largo is located close to Tampa/St Pete Florida.
Here is the job posting, and good luck to anyone that wishes to apply.
