There's Plenty of FMS Work Around

I've just had a look onto the job board of my forums and there seem to be plenty of job requests with few or no replies. Granted, some of the jobs posted look a bit - let's say - less professional, but on the other hand there's companies like stickam posting flexible on-site and telecommute positions. But no replies. Did the developers reply directly or nor at all? I'm not sure.

Wowza and Red5 are also in heavy demand, but again with few or no replies. So if you are a developer stuck in an agency building Flash banners then ask yourself what else you could be doing...?

Another good place to promote yourself for free in front of the who's who of FMS is my mailing list, that's in case you are looking for FMS related work. Potential employers are also encouraged to post their jobs there.

The people at Mobifriends have asked me to post the following job offer:

"We are developing a new internet and mobile social network service.

We have been working with one company to develop the VideoChat of Mobifriends.
