How to find reliable offshore (India) programming shop? (this is not aspam)

This message isn't spam or an advertisement or trolling.

I'm considering farming some of my application development to offshore shops
(I'm in the US). I have absolutely *no* experience w/ this, and therefore I'm
looking for comments, suggestions, etc. on how to go about this w/o getting
screwed.

My current application development is primarily database-driven apps in C++/C#,
so I'm looking for programmers w/ up-to-date skills.

Anyone have any comments/suggestions?

Thanks

And we follow formal methods more. Better working hours and human rights
unlike the US of A.SS


I doubt that formal methods are followed better, India has by far the
highest number of CMM Level 5 companies.

Without any proof to support my statement I still believe that CEE
(Central and East European) companies have in wit what they lack in
form (I'm probably a bit biased here).

This link is some 1.5 years old... Now, what's CMM level good for?

Go on with offshore development projects, and your country will soon be a
desert with noone to buy your products.
Have you thought about that ?
I used to think there were laws in the US to prevent this kind of suicidal
business... ?

Anyway, that's not the place for such debates.

Not only that, but every company I have talked to that offshored a project
has been completely dissapponted with the results. No (or very poor)
communication, language barriers, time zone differences, quality of product,
change management... the list goes on and on. I would rather see H1 visas
then offshoring.

Having been through a project like this I can relate to these issues. Don't
do it unless you are prepared for a lot of difficult project management.

Why don't you try Eastern Europe? eg: Romania ...

They might not be as cheap as India, but they are surely
more reliable and quality is far better than India.
Plus much better trained ...

For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
