    Low cost, I agree. But there are certain things that need to be considered, like code-maintenance etc.

    My company had a part of a project subcontracted to a company in India. I was quite disappointed at first as I thought I could finally have a taste of EJB development. In the end, it was me who was adding functionalities, fixing bugs and finding work-arounds just to get things "going on", since the subcontractor started to give ridiculous work quotations (and prices) even for simple jobs

    They are cost less and I am told they are more "eager" and more "motivated" despite their seemingly low pay compared to us. With them around, obviously our motivation also affected what.

    Some companies seem to be consolidating job responsibilities.... as in the things that Web Developers usually work on are being rolled into a Software Developer / Engineer job. That's hardly surprising anyway, since some web technologies are tied to some language (or a subset of it)... so knowing JSP/Servlets mean that you know Java, and knowing ASP.NET means you know at least one of the supporting .NET languages.

    So in the future, it ain't gonna be that boring anymore, as you've got other tasks at hand as well

    Even then, programmer-types are now easily and cheaply replaced. I am told the cost of 1 web developer here can hire 5 in China and 10 in India!
