An untrained developer will always be cheaper than a trained one.

If the guy is super smart and will be able to pick it up the basics in two weeks under supervision (which you should be able to figure based on track record, knowing the developer etc.) and you have someone to mentor him then do it!

It is a risk but for big rewards (lower salaries, better profits). Why do you think so many companies employ Graduates?
