How to Find the Best App Developers
According to Evans Data Corporation, the number of developers hit 22 million in 2017. It's estimated that the number of developers will increase to 26 million by 2022. And nowadays app developers are working all over the world.
Here are some figures:
Sure, hiring a local development team is attractive for a couple of reasons. You're in the same time zone so there won't be any early morning or night meetings. There won't be any misunderstandings due to the language barrier or differences in culture. You'll be in tune with your team since you speak the same language, live in the same country, and follow the same traditions. In case something gets wrong, it's easier to manage conflicts with the locals.
But sometimes local developers can't meet your case or the rates are too high. Then you can always outsource offshore app developers. You can find more on outsourcing in our previous article.
In turn, offshore developers offer substantial benefits as well. There is a wide range of reliable and experienced development partners who know how to build a great app for every business niche.
As a rule, you won't face any problems with the time difference. It's enough to have 2 or 3 overlapping hours to hold a successful communication with your development team. And the same time, you can develop an app at lower rates without the loss in quality. Let's take a look at top three development destinations.
According to Statista, the average hourly rate is the highest in North America. It ranges between 150 and 160 dollars per hour.
Speaking of the European region, London and Berlin are the most popular development destinations. The capital of the UK makes around one-third of the app revenues. And it's the second most important tech hub after the U.S. And Berlin gets the second place when it comes to the EU.
According to Statista, the average hourly rate is 70 dollars in London and around 60 dollars in Berlin.
