The end result was much cleaner, more concise code that powered highly complex client side applications (interactive financial data charts).

Daniel was very helpful in working out a tactical approach in tackling a Wagtail CMS implementation of a complex data structure. I would definitely hire Daniel again.

As a complete "newb" who's created a few scripts and 3-4 days into picking up Javascript..... Daniel crushed it helping me solve a few major javascript problems and even educated me on some of the basics around Javascript programming and working with Node. Couldn't recommend more highly.. EXACTLY the type of advice I was looking for :)

Awesome first session. Gave me great explanation in a way that I haven't heard in multiple tutorials and videos online.
Chris Huie Jan 31, 2015

Daniel was able to jump right into my complex code (3000+ lines in the core app), and help me isolate the issues I was having, as well as give me direction for improving the code structure. I will be asking for his services in the future and I'd highly recommend him.

I have worked with quite a few people on code mentor and I can easily say Daniel is of the of the best I have worked with so far. He is very friendly and energetic, he knows his stuff and works quickly. He was able to help me get my problem solved in record time and still some how managed to teach me along the way. What really impressed me was he also took the time to go above and beyond to help me solve some other unrelated issues as well. I would highly recommend Daniel to anyone looking to solve or better understand Javascript and or CSS.

Did a great job understanding the issue and double-checking that he was working towards a solution I was after!
