Global Software Development

Jon Udell writes that “as programming talent proliferates worldwide, dynamic development frameworks are bringing developers together using collaborative technologies and open source.”

With U.S. enterprises increasingly looking to offshore talent to reduce costs, the American programmer has become, in bottom-line speak, a fungible asset. As the globalization of software development unfolds all around us, it’s clear that dollars-per-line-of-code is but one of the equation’s variables. Other factors influencing this view include time to market, the speed with which project teams and resources can be assembled, and the rate at which tools and techniques can be transferred between offshore outfits and U.S and European companies.
