Sometimes I wonder if spam that has really outdated language is just old spam bots, running on autopilot, living on the internet somewhere, on some forgotten server.
I love indian curry. Amazing food.
I'm on a LinkedIn group for UX that regularly has these guys from India or Pakistan spam a PSD to HTML service, like its the best thing for web design you cold possibly use. All their language is so dated, the work sucks, and do people even use services like that? This totally made me think of that.
Start a new thread and name it "I'm a Indian, ask me"
It's actually good for the industry. Client lights X amount of $$ on offshore realizing it's not as easy as they thought and are willing to hand it off to an expert and pay them fair.
On another note, I outsource various parts offshore and the quality for front end work is actually very high. Better than many of the local developers.
It's actually a bit of a threat for junior developers and/or newbies looking for their first gigs.
Same shit everywhere it seems. Some guys I know just opened a business and offer design services and e-commerce. They have zero experience in this field besides working six months as sales guys for another e-commerce business.
As long as you don't have to fill a bigger investment you have a swarm of idiots coming with their cheap laptops.
Ugh China's like that too.
I think a lot of it has to do with poor understanding of tech. People don't understand the complexity and challenge of creating an e-commerce site or iOS app so they think they can get it for cheap when in reality they would likely be better off just burning the money given the headache it will involve.
Where I've found outsourcing works is for small, mundane tasks like front end development. But even then you need a knowledgeable person managing the process who can correct mistakes, provide quality control etc.
