"How easy were they to train?" would be the first question that occurred to me.

I think outsourcing is often a bad idea, but not because of foreign developers so much as the challenges of managing a project over seas and also navigating often very different cultures and sometimes languages which makes communication and choreography a problem.

At the end of the day it trades shedding development costs and offloading the day to day mechanics of it with much more cost in terms of managing the project in such a way that it can be successful, and my experience is that most companies do not understand that, and their management is ill equipped to handle it, especially the first time.

It's a good way to make a project fail in an industry where failure is already all too common.

I think if you added up all of the hidden costs associated with outsourcing and stacked it up against the benefits, and then looked at the industry as a whole you'd find it does more harm than good, but I haven't run the numbers.

It's just a hunch.
