Google shows 278M hits for java and 1.14M hits for xquery. dice.com shows five job listings with "Xquery" in the title, a total of 82 jobs with xquery in the description (curiously, all but one of the five are in Ohio - a veritable Xquery hotbed? more likely the same job posted my multiple agencies). So if you're an out-of-work xquery developer, you don't have a lot of options. for comparision, dice shows show 2633 jobs with "java" in the title and 8945 jobs with "java" in the description). so this places the Java:Xquery ratio somewhere around 100:1, 250:1, 500:1 Call it 250:1. Googling around I find a figure of 6.5M java developers, at 250:1, that would imply 26,000 xquery developers (sounds way high). If I Google to find resumes that contain Xquery - I get 901. Considering that JavaOne draws 15,000 attendees, XqueryOne would draw 60. - Mike -----Original Message----- From: Daniela Florescu [mailto:http://x-query.com/mailman/listinfo/talk] Sent: Wednesday, August 26, 2009 10:39 AM To: Marcus Clemens Cc: http://x-query.com/mailman/listinfo/talk Subject: Re: size of XQuery developer community Thanks. Here comes my second question to which I'd appreciate an insight: 2) Is the demand for XQuery developers larger then the offer ?
