There’s not a ton of Django and Python work in Toronto, and that alone is enough for some people. It’s also nice to have a good chance to see what you’d be working on before you agree to do so. Lots of jobs and contracts don’t give you that opportunity.
It’s intermediate work, there isn’t a lot of it.
Your mileage may vary when it comes to doing part-time work, but if you’re already a free-lancer working with multiple clients, and you’ve got some time free, this is just the sort of thing you’d want to see.
Your mileage may also vary when it comes to describing REST or JSON as an internet protocol, but at least you’re dealing with someone who’s heard of REST and JSON.
This is basically custom-made for the freelancer-type — people doing contract work, but not locked into long full-time contract work where you can’t squeeze any time in for any other clients. If that sounds like you and you know Python, and possibly Django, this could be interesting.
