This post has been dwelling within me for the past couple days.
I’ve been trying to find a responsible ASP.net programmer for a three-week project. Unfortunately we have a problem with one of those words: responsible. How do I know they are responsible? How do I know they won’t put me off for another project, even though I’m paying them top dollar to do this project right now?
Ask for references… Great, this guy made 50 websites in the last 10 years, and three of them are happy. I guess that means he’s responsible.
It’s a very tough situation, especially since it is very hard to switch horses mid-stream when you get into the complicated and extensive programming projects.
I think I’ve heard so many bad guys say this in movies… and I’ll go ahead and repeat it.
