I'm looking to try outsourcing some HTML/CSS coding - However.....

By Andrew Pollack on 03/07/2009 at 07:52 PM EST

For outsourcing html/css, I don't dare do a web search on it and just pick -- and I sure as hell don't want to pick from the ones that spam me. Who are you using?

I get pages in Illustrator that were put together from a "designer" (who just can't seem to understand that this is NOT a good design tool for the web). This happens at least once a month. I need to turn them into html/css. Once that's done, I rip sections of code out and replace it with dynamic content using Notes fields.

I'm considering running a bit of a bid contest -- send the same layout to two or three off shore code houses and see which gives me back the best result for the cost. Is anyone already using a resource for this that they like? This should be fairly cheap, commodity level work.

I use a local guy who was recently laid off. He's very talented and
affordable. While he's looking for a new job he is able to supplement his
unemployment income by doing some work for me. It's a win win situation.
We're in Worcester. Let me know if you'd like his contact info. His work is
featured at and Try not
to judge by content of the site but on the design merits. ;)

I've used Jake from a few times now. He knows Domino, is
reliable and refreshing to work with (none of this complicated bull-shit :o).
He comes highly recommended!

I used to find a router programmer -- the spec/bid/approve/escrow
system worked great, and if you find someone in the US, they apparently handle
the 1099s for you.

Might be worth a look if you're going beyond friends-of-friends.

all kinds of graphics.

The truth is, I haven't had much to say that was worthy of more than a basic social media post -- until today. For my current work, I was assigned a new laptop. It's a real powerhouse machine with 14 processor cores and 64 gigs of ram. It should be perfect for running my development environment in a virtual machine, but it wasn't. VirtualBox was barely starting, and no matter how many features I turned off, it could ......

The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......
