      It depends on a person's situation. If it's early career and you need good experience on the resume, then it could be a good thing.

      Thatโ€™s why I said โ€œthatโ€™s just meโ€. Everyone has their own reasons.

    Irvine is fine. I found it quiet, dull, and boring while in my 20s but I'm sure my perspective has evolved as I got older. Well planned communities, close to the water, lots of bike trails and not too far from LA or SD if you want to venture out.

    It's the most boring town in the world but has a few very nice restaurants and not too far from LA, you'll get to explore what I think is the greatest food town in the US

    Thank you guys, I don't like only that, it is a contact for 6 months
    No questions if it would be a full time... After my contract will be over I am pretty sure, there are not so many tech companies, and I would have to come back. That's annoying with my truck of personal stuff.
    I'll rather stay here then.
