Open Source and contracting work

I am not surre that contracted development is disapearing, but there is certainly more emphasis being put on integration using open source. Which suits me fine. Because that is what we do.

I don't know about Germany, but in the San Francisco Bay Area contracting seems to have totally dissapeared, in sharp contrast with the old dot com days. No company seems to hire professionals to do open source integration, instead they all try to use in-house developers to do it. I'm not sure how well this works in reality, with developers and managers which were not previously exposed to the open-source way of doing things.
