You should be learning REST architecture. SOA will continue to be phased out as time goes on.

You mean SOAP not SOA. SOA is an achitectural model. REST is one type of SOA model, SOAP is another type. I hear this all of the time, and the reality is that SOA and SOAP get confused all of the time. With that said, I have worked quite a bit with REST in the last couple of years, and even dealt with a SOAP -> REST migration project. The issue with SOA is that it's MAINLY for large scale, to mid scale businesses. It's really not a great small business solution, which is unfortunate. I do think if I go this route, it would be preferable to be in a market where there are a lot of mid sized businesses that would want to go towards a more integrated solution like SOA.

^ You're right. For some reason I read that as SOAP instead of SOA. Not sure I would say that it's not great for small type of stuff. It depends on what you're doing, and RoR has made all of the set-up time a lot quicker for smaller projects.

You can still make more money up north, but it evens out because our cost of living is much lower than in the Bay Area.

I work in "Silicon Beach" and I agree -- it's a real bright spot to our local economy. It gets overshadowed by the entertainment industry which has taken a beating in LA over the last 5-10 years because of constant outsourcing of jobs to other cities. And unfortunately for those in the entertainment industry, it's going to get worse before it gets better.

Although apparently the health care industry in LA is also doing well -- per the job report I hear on KEARTH every morning.

They call it "Silicon Beach" for a reason. All these tech companies are out in the Westside of LA between Santa Monica and El Segundo. I feel it would get a lot more publicity if the companies were centered in DTLA as the city is really trying hard to get downtown to thrive.
