Is this in relation to the US? Here in the UK software developers are in short supply and when I get fed up of a job or want a payrise (usually once a year or every 2 years if I like the company) then I usually find a new job within a week of searching. I find that once you have around 10 years of experience and have worked as a senior / technical lead or principle developer its super easy to get a new role even if you haven't worked with the latest tech as you can always say "I haven't worked with that before but it should be pretty easy to pickup"...
