How many years of experience do you have?

Outsourcing Expertise aka: The Big Web Blunder

In the spring of 2000 I cut my teeth in web “programming” when I built intel.com. At the time I was working for a prestigious ad agency in Salt Lake City (DSW or EURO RSCG DSW Partners). I began working under another developer since it was the first time I had ever written any software […]
