IS THAT A STUPID NEWBIE AVATAR? FUCK NO, YOU'RE GETTING A PENTAR

If you've done some outsourcing with offshore developers, how has your experience been and who were they?

I've contracted some work on a website and used two companies: Tunga and Sloboda.

Both experiences were exactly the same.

They both start out great, finishing projects quickly and at a reasonable cost. Then as I requested more projects, they began to take their time, do lots of "refactoring" and often end up on the "pessimistic" side of their estimates. When pressed about what was taking so long the usualky answer was that I had asked them to do something they'd never done before and needed a week to research it while I was still being billed. One example was Stripe integration. I find it hard to believe that an established company full of programmers had no one on staff who had set up Stripe for a client before.

Basically, it got worse and worse until I could get to a stopping point and stop working with them.

I know experiences and projects vary wildly but I would like to hear about others' experience with outsourced web development.

Now, listen - I know the two of you are very different from each other in a lot of ways, but you have to understand that as far as Grandpa's concerned, you're both pieces of shit! Yeah. I can prove it mathematically.

i think you're looking for 'offshoring vs. onshoring' as opposed to 'foreign vs. non-foreign'...

I would guess that Stripe not being in Eastern Europe, Africa, or most of Asia, being a slight factor in knowledge. If you stuck to plain basic code with almost no third party integration you would be in a more productive spot.

Sic transit gloria. Maybe we'll meet again someday, when the fighting stops.

Anyone notice how foreign developers are ruining our dev environment and corrupting our child processes?

So you expect them to do the research on how to implement something into your project on their own time for free? You're the problem here, not them.
