No this is not the typical article exposing all the accumulated bad experiences of all humanity doing outsourcing. Actually, the model is great, you send the work you don’t want to do to another country by the half of the price of doing it inhouse.
So, why is so horrible?
Because that is not giving you any new experience, in the best scenario you become an hour police, and Q&A filter, and even when you are saving money life is passing.
Can we imagine an amazing experience doing software?
I listened before about medical tourism, you travel México where are a great level in medicine and good hospitals, take your treatment save the half of the price than in the USA and then move to a fancy beach to recover with a coco drink and when you are ready a good tequila.
Well in software is not happening, because you don’t want it. I found a city named Hermosillo in the nort west Mexico just 2 hours from the border, which is amazing, its a great city, with malls, cinemas first class night life, good food, a bunch of software development companies and two beaches really,really amazing search for them, one is San Carlos and the other one is named Kino Bay, different kinds, but wonderful both.
I spoke with the CEO of one of those Software companies and they lend me for free his beach house for a month, while we developed an app, the software was amazing, my development experience was outstanding, out of this world.
I don’t want to make publicity to this guys, because they are my treasure, they are mine, but if you are burning to know send me a tweet @exposeMx
