Please assist- Python Consultant needed for 3-6 month project

I am contacting you from a company called Software Specialists, an IT Placement Firm based in Pittsburgh, PA. We are prepared to make a donation to your organization if you could please help us out with a referral. We are looking for a python developer with web-based application experience. If you know of anyone, or if you would be able to post this opportunity on your site, I would greatly appreciate it. I am finding this skill pretty much impossible to identify locally, and I really would like to be able to assist my client with this position. I am just trying to be creative in my search, I hope I am reaching the right person with this request. If not, I apologize. Thank you in advance for any assistanceyou may be able to provide.

Best Regards,

Kelley,

I don't know if your client is willing to pay for a week or two
of non-productive time, but I think a good Perl programmer with
web development experience could pick up Python in a week, and a
good Java or C# programmer could pick it up in two weeks.

I've personally always believed that, when comparing a good
programmer with no specific experience in a particular language,
and an average programmer with lots of experience, the good
programmer will outperform the average one in any task lasting
more than a couple of months.

Of course I haven't always been able to convince managers of
that.
