I don't agree with the comments Body shopper doesn't just have mediocre developers. It may have really good coders, designers. The only reason to join a body shopping firm is to get an entry into the country.
Body shopping; When one of my ex co workers said I was not educated enough be a developer, I said, �I am educated enough to build car� he said, �I don�t think so� I said ,�I am if I worked for Henry T Ford�

The good ones we just didn't call body shops. We had a great team of coders and managers alike from Thoughtworks. They brought a lot more than warm bodies.
The shop that gave us unspectacular coders has been sold and changed names a couple times I think. They grew to fast and over-promised, at least in our case. [ June 05, 2005: Message edited by: Stan James ]
A good question is never answered. It is not a bolt to be tightened into place but a seed to be planted and to bear more seed toward the hope of greening the landscape of the idea. John Ciardi
