The pro's and con's of an offshore development company and developers for hire



New Member
Hi all.

I am just looking for some advice, points and hopefully some previous experiences please when it comes to using offshore ( non UK ) software development companies or developers for hire? I have heard good and bad things and would love some advice. Are they any good, are they safe, what are your particular concerns etc.

I agree that their pricing is great compared to purely UK companies but is that at a cost and if so what?

Thanks in advance all

A big issue is getting your money back if things don't go according to plan, if you don't know an outfit you may be best starting out by using one of the popular gig platforms such as Fiverr or Peopleperhour, I've used both of these for many years and had some good and some not so good experiences but it is a low cost way of getting work done.
