Don't take me wrong... I'm a developer just like everybody else.

I have landed a couple of contracts where my employeers just have to provide
a client computer with remote access and meet only with the project leader.
All work is done remotly (got a couple of pals in the United States and
other two in Mexico). We get together via chatrooms and review what has to
be done by whom. Once the work is done, the project leader uploads the
applications to our client's machine and the customers give it a try.

All in all, has worked well but it seems to be it has been pure sheer luck,
as nobody seems to be doing the same. Now, I know a couple of ducks don't
make the shooting season but if you guys send me your CV's I'll gladly send
them to our other prospects...

Perhaps what seems more intriguing to me is how to unify labor rates all
over the world and evaluate performance as in Mexico we have hordes of VB
programmers that get misery salaries. The funny thing is that although
Sybase Mexico isn't really making a effort to sell their technology, the
trend IT executives seem to follow is to outsorce their needs just as
happened in the United States a few years ago: monkey see, monkey do... ;)
