Edward Yourdon on Outsourcing


Edward Yourdon, author of The Decline and Fall of the American Programmer and many other programmer gems, offers his perspective in a new book: Outsource: Competing in the Global Productivity Race. Haven\’t received my copy yet, but you can read Mr. Yourdon\’s introduction here.

The value of the book, as I understand it, is in how the author lays out a plan of action for programmers — and other knowledge workers — to stay upright and preserve themselves and their careers in the face of industry-transforming tremblers.
