The first thing to point out is that it was only an article about demand for .Net services and not a request for services.
Another thing that struck me about the ten people that contacted me was they were all based in India.
Is this because there is a shortage in the UK, or is this just because the article was not understood to be what it was, a blog post by a journalist. Could it be true that there are communication barriers between the UK and India?
If there is a shortage I think we could well see a lot of offshoring to India by UK businessess. I was offered rates as low as $10 per hour.
Any UK .Net experts out their?
