Is there a simple way to determine the number of employers looking to hire developers in a particular city or state?
I want to determine if it is worth my while (and money) to "file" my resume. I live in Melbourne, Australia, so the number of employers looking at careers.stackoverflow.com will be fairly low. I want to quantify this.
If you live in one of the major US centres of software development (Seattle, SF etc) you can be confident there will be plenty of employers in your area. In more remote parts of the globe this won't necessarily be the case.
