John Larson on offshoring:
Our heroes’ need to be super explicit in order to get what they want reveals another major advantage that local programmers have: nobody wants to have to babysit their programmer with constant direction and correction. Communicate the overall vision of what you’re trying to create for your customers, and any programmer worth their salt will bring their A-game to solve it from that shared understanding. The net result is a project that is completed faster, racks up far fewer billable hours, and saves you headaches and time.
I am sure I am not the only one thinking “Yes, that’s about right”.
