Brian Barton Jan 08, 2016

We didn't find the exact solution to my problem but Daniel courteously paused our timer to keep the cost at a minimum and still helped me after the fact. A great mentor.
Derek Jan 05, 2016

Daniel was great! He helped me solve a problem I was running into with my app and he explained everything I had questions on.
Shawn Murray Dec 22, 2015

Daniel has been helping my build an app. I knew no Swift before this and had limited experience with iOS. He's been really helpful, patient, and is making sure I am learning the key concepts along the way. It's sort of like the best 1:1 bootcamp ever with an app that I want to build at the end. I highly recommend Daniel to anyone with a particular issue or wanting to learn and work on something.
Shalini Agarwal Dec 22, 2015

Great mentor. We covered many core aspects of Objective-C and he has a strong conceptual understanding of the material.
Derek Dec 21, 2015

Thanks again Daniel. Nice work sorting through my problem.
Doug Dec 19, 2015

Great help in talking through the issues.
Patrick Dec 14, 2015

Daniel is really knowledgeable and patient. I'm looking forward to working with him on building my app.
Shalini Agarwal Dec 13, 2015

Daniel was great at grasping my problem, finding the solution, working with me to implement the changes and then making sure I understood what we had done. Would be happy to work with him again.
Doug Dec 11, 2015

Super nice guy, easy to work, knows his stuff! Look forward to more sessions with him as I am learning.
Brian Barton Dec 08, 2015

Extremely helpful. Helped me on GitHub and made sure and helped get to the core of my problem. Would recommend highly to anyone else who needs help.

Dan was awesome. He actually offered a free session to first understand my problem, which was pretty advanced, did some personal research to be comfortable with resolving my issues before we started the session. And he was patient and professional all through out in helping. So booking again!
