I'll admit that I have some orphaned pgxn efforts... but I know it's also (past) time for me to start investigating the type of piece work that Programmers Emeritus can get when the ageism finally strikes them down in the prime of late middle age. I've been looking at devops but was just reminded that I've written both C and java extensions.
(It was years ago, long before my current job became the black hole of free time, but the basics should be the same even if I have to remember libssl has been replaced by gnutls, or is it something else now?)
So, Pavel, do you mind giving any details about the type of paid work you're seeing offered? I won't be actively looking for a while, years even, but I'm curious since it never occurred to me that there would be a viable market here.
