ABOUT ME
Hi there! My name is Sam and I'm a web developer with nearly twenty years experience.

I can help those interested in coding improve at what they do and learn how to approach and solve technical problems. Other related skills: HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Redux, Git.

Sam, Helped me solve several issues I had been struggling with right away. I highly recommend.
Jake Litke Dec 07, 2016

Sam helped me through a difficult Meteor publish and subscribe problem. I recommend him to anyone learning JS, Meteor and React. He gets to the bottom of problems quickly, and talks out loud about the how and why of how to fix it while reinforcing best practices along the way. And recaps everything at the end. Great mentor. Thanks Sam!

Sam was very helpful and patient. Hope to work with him again very soon.

Sam has a gift for helping and explaining how he helped. I've got a little assignment to complete from this session. I'm feeling confident I can do it. We'll meet next week to review.
Alan Millar Apr 01, 2016

Sam knows Meteor inside and out. He helped me with a ton of Javascript issues as well. We're getting together again soon and I'm confident he'll be just as grand a mentor with my foray into React.

Fast, smart and will go the extra mile to help you.
Charles Voltron Feb 05, 2016

Sam shared his screen with me and created a small project to show me all the steps. Then he sent me the files and a video. He taught me a whole bunch of new things that will make my development with Meteor much easier.
David Ewers Feb 02, 2016

Once again, super quick, concise, surgical precision in getting my issue resolved as well as educating me on how it was solved. Sam is a great resource.
