Notable quotes

“In the early days, I spent from $6-$10 an hour on programmers from Odesk. Nowadays, when I hire developers I pay in the $20’s. It’s ways easier to find someone of better quality, when you pay them in the $20-$30 range. Now both of the developers I have are in Argentina.”

“The developers I’m hiring now, from Odesk, are better than the developers I worked with the USA that were making 6 figures.”

“I treat my full-time outsourced developers the same way I would treat a normal employee.”

“By outsourcing, I was able to build Buildsketch in 4 months. Quick.”
