comment Offshoring: does it ever work?
@RYUZAKI, You like Soska have misinterpreted my response. Again, it is the "implementation" of offshoring with which I have a problem. You are lucky to be working in an organization where people are valued, but there are a lot of situations where resources have to work much harder in unfair circumstances and this is where the model begins to collapse. Offshoring can work great if done right, but sometimes when COST SAVING is the only objective things can get ugly. (Point being, a good developer, in any country will write good code. Be it Pune or otherwise) ! Peace man!

@Soska, No I am definitely not implying such a thing. If you read the entire answer, you will realize that it is the implementation of "offshoring" that I find flawed.

@regularfry, I am also very skeptical of statistics used by and for the management ;-) One day they might display the "defect rates are proportional to distance" slide and on another "profits are proportional to distance" slide ;)

@regularfry, I agree with you. Distance does create issues one wouldn't face on-shore, but it would not be fair to blame everything that went wrong with an off-shore setting on "distance". Also "distance" is an easy target; requirement gaps, missed timelines, out of sync source-control - you can blame it all on distance! One must look for the real issue here - maybe a protocol for sharing the source control across shores was missing? Rules are different and increase as you move from "Sole programmer" to a "Team of Programmers" to a "Distributed team of programmers".

comment Places of historic significance in the field of programming?
very cool, I'd love to see that in person. The links on that exhibition site don't work too well; whats funny is the error message that shows up - "The following information is meant for the website developer for debugging purposes.... Check the ColdFusion documentation to verify that you are using the correct syntax." Pure innocence!
