I’ve been using the oDesk service to build custom software systems for about 3.5 years now. I’ve worked with contractors from across the world including India, Philippines, Bolivia, US, Canada, and Mexico. There’s a world full of very skilled people out there, and oDesk makes it easy to connect with them and accomplish great things.
Over the years, I’ve been lucky to establish strong relationships with a number of highly skilled contractors. So Brian McDonough from oDesk interviewed me to find out what I think makes a contractor great. I think it’s an interesting article and one that’s relevant to me personally in my role as a consultant.
