[nycphp-talk] State Of The PHP Economy 2009

How has the economic apocalypse left the PHP world?

So far I've heard some rumors of job layoffs, but most of them have been 
relegated to the financial sector. Every freelancer/consultant I know of 
that has been in business for more than a year is doing great, but 
recent starters are having a harder time of it.

Venture capital money is starting to tighten up (but not as much as I 
thought it would), which more or less affects the PHP world since PHP 
tends to see more use in startups.

What are you guys hearing out there? What's the job market like in NYC?
