Living and working in the Philippines (Manila)


My wife is a Filipino and we will be vising the Philippines in December. We have discussed relocating to the Philippines from Canada and it seems like there are definite prospects. I would like to make some contacts in the IT industry in the Philippines so if anyone here is one/knows of anyone who I could get in contact with, that would be great.

I'm a Senior Java Developer and I'd like to get an idea for the prospects and salary expectations for Manila and any other cities where I could prospectively be employed (Cebu?). I'd be interested in Senior Dev, Team Lead, Development Manager, or Architect roles.

I also have strong contacts in the It industry in Canada so I would like to discuss possible partnerships with established Philippine development firms.

Any information, suggestions, or advice anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated!!
