RIGHT ON! Article on Outsourcing
Here's an excellent article on the outsourcing mess. This guy hits it right on the head and it's something that us XP/Agile and Smalltalkers have been talking about for awhile. I think the smarter IT organizations will realize that they can get more done with less, but the less needs to be smarter folks. And how do you find and keep the smart people? Create an environment that inspires them and they will come. And to find out if you have a smart one, look at their code and put them on a "try before you buy" basis. India is nothing to be scared of. I think weeding out people that don't love programming is a good thing. Programming is not just a job, it's a passion.
I got the article from a friend of mine, Ram. Thanks Ram!
