Welcome to the forum!

 

Totally depends on what you mean by "Outsource". Outsourcing can be as simple as getting designer or developer next door to you to work on projects for you, or it can mean, as it usually does, paying a foreign company or individual sod all to do your work for you.

 

In regards to the latter, yes there are great devs out there in countries commonly known for their outsourcing, such as (but not exclusively) India, Pakistan and the Philippians, however they're normally employed and earning what they should be earning. The ones that email you every 5 seconds to flog you services are the ones to avoid and are nothing more than development sweatshops. 

 

A good rule of thumb is if it seems to cheap to be true, then it's probably not going to be ethical or up-to the standard you'd want.

This one would be a good start, most of us here take freelance work.
