Houston and Microsoft
Houston just seems to be a hotbed of Microsoft centric development. Part of the reason is that .NET is one of the most scalable offerings out there – especially in the SOA and Cloud computing domains.
Several Oil and Gas companies are headquartered in Houston. Their software initiatives encompass both web and desktop applications. And large SOA integrations. Ideally, they would like a common technology platform to build their desktop apps, their web apps, their SOA apps and their 3rd party integrations. Microsoft .NET provides them with a rich platform to do just that.
WIth that in mind, .NET architects are in demand in Houston.
