Uzo Nov 19, 2016

My second session with Daniel went as well as the first. Highly recommended.
Eric Oct 15, 2016

Daniel was able to help me recover from a mysql database corruption issue like a pro mysql database administrator. He helped me solve the problem and get back on track.
Eric Oct 15, 2016

Excellent. Sorted out the problem in a few minutes.
Tim Smith Jun 14, 2016

Danny was great working with. I would like to work with Danny on another product.
Dan Jensen Mar 03, 2016

I've hired Daniel for an offline help offer to code me an Google Chrome addon for my personal use. After writing with several coders Daniel was the first one who understood what I want - might be my english but Daniel really tried to get what I want. :o Communication with him went very friendly and he was willing to satisfy me. Although we sometimes didn't met at the arranged time ( - And I thought of giving 4 Stars for this) he did an awesome Job. Since it was also a technical issue I forgive him :D. I could always ask him Questions which he answered very well. The result of his efforts stunned me. The software runs very smooth and does exactly what I want it to do. He even guided me to set it up. Seriously, I believe I underpaid him for this piece of highly professional Software. Daniel knows his business very well. Even after we completed the project he cares about his work and checks if everything is good. I think I could hardly find anyone else to satisfy me on that level. 5* Stars!
icrashdump Feb 26, 2016

Danny is a React savant! I can't say enough good things about him.
David Handel Feb 12, 2016

Danny is brilliant and a superb mentor. This was my first session with him and I expect to do many more.
David Handel Feb 04, 2016

I'm very excited to write this review. I came to Daniel with a pretty challenging task (converting a highly custom Single Page Application to Wordpress) and a even more challenging deadline. In return he not only managed to reach the goal within the timeline, but he also exceeded my expectations, patiently guiding me through the process as he progressed with the task, and I learned a lot from that. I will certainly recommend him to my friends.
Izaias Jan 24, 2016

Daniel is helping me to convert an existing HTML5 website to Wordpress. The work is still in progress, but I could already tell from the first session that he knows what he is doing. I'm quite confident that we will have the task done on time and he will exceed any expectations!
Izaias Jan 23, 2016

Quick and painless. The session was nothing less than fantastic - would connect with mentor again!
Brenden Jan 18, 2016

Very strong developer. Very fast. Very experienced. Would hire Daniel again.

Daniel is outstanding. He solved everything quickly and answered every question I had. He also explained all of the steps he took and went out of his way to introduce new concepts so that I can use them in the future.
Kyle Sep 02, 2015

As always Daniel is very wise with node and I can fairly recommend him.
360Disrupt Aug 28, 2015

Danny is A+++! He helped me with a PHP/ JQuery issue for a Wordpress site. Patient and really knows his stuff. Creative and resourceful--he figured out a great solution for a really annoying problem.
Keren lerner Aug 26, 2015

I've held several sessions with Danny. The guy is brilliant. You can hear the brilliance pouring from the tips of his fingers onto the keyboard when he takes control of the computer to solve your problem. After a session with Danny I always think: "I could never have done that myself or I could not have solved that problem that quickly. With other mentors, I could see them feeling their way through the dark on my dollar. This service is too expensive to be working with guys that are not of Danny's caliber. P.S. he's really cool. Not that it matters, but we all know it does.
Ramon Andino Aug 18, 2015

He is friendly, professional and always willing to go the extra mile
Babafemi Aug 18, 2015

Solved my problem quick and understandable. Learned some cool debugging trick on the way.
360Disrupt Aug 18, 2015

Daniel is a really good mentor. He worked with me on a problem (which was solved) and helped me to restructure my code. Definitely a mentor to talk to again.
360Disrupt Aug 17, 2015

Daniel is a truly talented dev. He systematically worked through an issue I was having and came up with an impressive solution. I have utmost respect and confidence in his abilities to solve any problem that is within his expertise. Highly recommended.

Great first session on Git and Github. Debating on the subject clear things a lot faster than a oneway tutorial.

I keep coming back for more mentoring because Daniel is simply the best at what he does and he is an excellent mentor.
chris Jun 09, 2015

Daniel was fantastic. He was very knowledgeable, very responsive, and very clear with his instructions. He did not use my time or money unnecessarily, rather, he directed me to other resources but kindly invited me to connect with him again in the future. I would definitely connect with him in the future. What a great resource! I have already recommended it to a friend.
Alison Jun 08, 2015

Great service, great help. Very easy to follow and educational.
Kristina Jun 02, 2015

Daniel was awesome, I love his systematic approach to debugging. I learned a lot during the session. In the end it was a super weird bug that it would have taken me another 2 days to find. Highly recommended! I'll be contacting Daniel again.
Kareem Grant May 30, 2015

Daniel was able to quickly trouble shoot my issue with Gravity Forms and Authorize.net. He showed me the code issues in real-time and explained my problem while he was fixing it (many coding issues actually) because I wanted to learn more about coding issues as I need to understand why these types of problems were occurring. I am looking forward to my next mentoring session!
chris May 29, 2015

All problems solved! ))))
Nick May 29, 2015

most excellent
Arjun May 25, 2015

Again, an epic win with a help of Daniel!
Nick May 23, 2015

Daniel was SUPER helpful! I'm very glad that I applied to the mentor, because only during the session I realized how far I actually was from the solution to the problem that I had. I will definitely apply to Daniel next time I get stuck.
Nick May 23, 2015

I was initially concerned that we weren't finding a solution. However, Daniel really does know his stuff and found a solution to my problem. Would us eagain.
affle May 23, 2015

Quick and good, Thx
George Kolistasi May 23, 2015

Jeffrey May 19, 2015

Kind of a tough issue integrating an older activeX based card reader into a Meteor app. Really excellent help in getting it solved.
Gene Billingsley May 19, 2015

Very very good in explaining how angular directives work and helped me solve my issues with ngBlur on a directive!
Angelo Pardo May 18, 2015

Was able to get to the root of my problem and helped me to solve it very quickly.

Gene Billingsley May 11, 2015

Very quickly helped resolve my problem. Thanks Daniel!
Sina Khanifar May 11, 2015

Daniel was there for me when I really needed someone and no other mentors replied. It was an urgent matter and solved easily and quickly. Daniel also explained what was going wrong and why and then gave me the solution, walked me through why the solution works and also spotted a problem with the sessions and recommended another solution which I will likely go through with Daniel in a future mentoring session. Highly recommended mentor. Very knowledgeable, approachable and friendly.
Andrew Cooper Aug 04, 2014

Was very helpful with a CSS issue.
