I've been talking to a couple of companies who have large outsourcing teams. I asked if that impacted their daily schedules because of the time difference and was told that typically the Indian companies worked around US hours. (Not necessarily working US hours, but working either early or late to accomodate phone meetings during 9-5 hours for example.) How common is this? Is this just the norm if you want to go into this field? Is there a "night tech culture" emerging in the large tech cities... places where developers go for food at 10pm during the week for example?
