comment How do programmers in the West see programmers in the East?
I couldn't agree more that economics is the key here. Back before everyone was outsourcing to India you could get amazing talent, often at highly discounted rates. However, as demand for discounted programming talent has increased, it is more often than not supplied with substandard talent. Ironically, great Indian developers are more likely to stay working in India now than in the past, but the demand is so strong you have to filter out a lot of junk to find them.
