    10 Things To Know BEFORE Hiring A Freelance Programmer - Your programmers need...

    (Page 3 of 5 )

    Law 5: Your programmers need to speak decent English.

    Not that Indian dialect of English either, real English. This is definitely not the time to lose anything in translation. Plus if everything's in another language how can you possibly switch to another programmer if you need to later?

    Law 6: You will almost always catch stuff the programmer didn't.

    There is a real thing called Programmer's Immunity. Basically it says that the "average" user will have more computer problems than a programmer, because a programmer is used to making things work (work-arounds). This means every once in a while, your programmer will subconsciously miss bugs that are glaringly obvious to you.

    Don't get annoyed, just let the programmer know about the problem, and what exact steps need to be performed to reproduce the error.

    You will need to test the program yourself. You will also need to send the program out to beta testers to make sure others can use the software without problems AND you need to find out if the program can be used without instructions by someone who has never seen the software before.

    The installation instructions need to be worded as simply as possible, without a lot of legalese or technical terms.
