  C#/.Net Developer | E Commerce project manager
  Need: Basically they needed a good C#/.Net developer with SQL programming and Db experience
  because
  their web site and Db were in surprisingly bad shape - in fact, it was a wonder their e-commerce site
  functioned at all.

  Accomplishments:

  I re-build critical templates and code-behind pages. This brought their site back from the brink and
  allowed them to start making a profit.

  The next step was to build new functionality. Serving as both head project manager and lead
  developer, I managed a team of overseas developers (i.e., A-1 Technology). This significantly
  economized on development costs, and - it worked
  out surprisingly well.

  NOTE: Offshore outsourcing can be highly effective, but good results rarely happen by themselves.
  Companies need to go in with a good plan and the need a great project manager to oversee the
  outsourced project.
