Outsourcing Software Development to Latin America: All You Need to Know in 2018

Software outsourcing in Latin America

Looks like US-based businesses have never had more reasons to consider software development outsourcing in Latin America. Bloomberg reports that in 2018, US software engineers in active job search chose from 4 offers in average. Meanwhile, last year’s employee turnover rate in software was 13.2%, the highest among all industries. Basically, local developers are hard to find and easy to lose in the US.

In the meantime, programmers in Latin America are gearing up to compete with North Americans. The outsourcing industry in LatAm is growing, too, with new talent entering the market. So how does the region compare to other software outsourcing destinations like Eastern Europe or Asia?

Building a platform for cancer patients with Angular and Node

There is something to be said about learning you have cancer. Pretty much everything you thought was important doesn’t matter. Day-to-day trivial things become even less important, yet weirdly ever more so as you try to maintain a sense of normalcy while going through treatment.

Our latest client is an industry leader in Point-of-Sale systems

Growing up in the rural parts of the United States meant that every father had certain expectations for their sons on their way to (manly) manhood.

How to make software development estimation work for engineers and business

Software development estimation

We all know that software development estimation is hard, for many reasons:

  • In and by itself, software development is too dynamic and complex for precise estimates.
  • Estimates are perishable, even more so in Agile.
  • Parkinson’s law, Hofstadter’s law, Goodhart’s law, and a dozen more eponymic laws prove that accurate software estimation is impossible.

These points are probably nothing new to you. They come to the fore whenever engineers talk about estimating software development. Yet, there’s one more stumbling stone that people don’t bring up that often:

Keeping Canadians Indoors and Safe. React Native App for a Canadian Real Estate Service

Hailing from the great state of Minnesota, I was always very suspicious of my neighbors just to the north of us: The Canadians. Their ways were very foreign to us. Who makes a sport of sliding rocks on ice while sweeping? Their national dish Poutine, while delicious, has a rather unappealing look to it. So when I heard that Canadians live in houses, instead of igloos and trailer parks, as I had been lead to believe, I was more than a bit skeptical about these dubious claims.
