Main points

  • Generally, lower hourly rate means less experience and longer time to deliver the results, therefore final cost is not actually much lower, and time to launch is longer.
  • Cheaper developers tend to not spend time on analysis, preparation and specification - therefore spend more time on building, then fixing bugs and might not even deliver.
  • For bigger rate, you're getting not only a developer, but also a business consultant and a partner who will care about your business result, not only quality code.
