> For a reason I can't really explain, you mostly find PHP and C# developers here

Same here in Vancouver; I always figured the C# part was just our proximity to Redmond (and then PHP because it's the only language that doesn't impinge upon C#'s niche) but I guess it's more of a Canada-wide thing. Weird.

In the Phoenix area C# is king, followed by Java. Most development tends to be around business' internal applications... I've seen a small bit of PHP, Ruby and Python though... In the past two years NodeJS has probably passed them all, aside from C# for new development around here.

Maybe it has to do with what the local college CS department standardizes on.
