    If you had one shot and investors to launch your website, would use Indian programmers?

    I have worked with a ton of Indian devs, what is in your spec is *exactly* what you will get. no thought will be put into the implementation outside of that document.

    If every possible use case is not included in it you will have a buggy mess.

    However if you go Chinese then there goes your IP, and your shit is pirated all over Asia.

    American devs are the way to go :cheer:

    We have hired american developers and product is a bloody mess here in michigan. Paid top dollar too. You have to look at past projects that a developer has done. Talk to the people who have used the product...look at the scale of difficulty and then hire someone.....or you could be where I work and go for the political connection route. Got to be very careful of Indians and fake resumes though. There are some brilliant inddian programmers, but a whole buch of shitty one and hard to distinguish the bullshitters with that accent.

    If you can understand the Indian and he's cheap, go for it. The fact is, you can not understand any of them, and they will nickle and dime you to death.

    Most American "programmers" and "developers" these days are nothing but shithead degree clones, who really don't know much about computers other than how to play with their iPhones and Xbox's. And forget Indians, I'd put my money on Russians.

    i have less trouble understanding indians, but chinese talk way too fast and garbled. i asked my mgr if it was just me. he said "no", we all say the same thing. the secret is to make them talk slower.
