    Cape Town devs

    Hows the dev community in Cape Town? I am moving there in December, hopefully getting a new job in the new year. What's the job market look like? Specifically web dev!

    Web dev in general is in demand, so you shouldn't find too hard to get a good paying job with a stable company based in CT (or anywhere in SA for that matter). They will most likely have some form of dev test to prove your "initial" metal, and as long as you're up to date and know your trade, the job is going to be pretty much guaranteed.

    Just the basics with 2 years exp.

    HTML5
    CSS3
    JS

    PHP (Mainly fully custom WP themes/functions and the occasional server scripts)
    Python (Developed an API for work using aiohtttp, asyncio)

    I have recently started dabbling in React and Node, but just after hours and not at all proficient in them yet.
