Miguel Facusse Jun 30, 2016

We struggled with a javascript / css embed issue for hours. Unless we solved this problem, we wouldn't be able to launch our product. Customers were getting frustrated . Team was tired of spinning its wheels. You get the idea. We were so fed up with trying to fix the problem that we logged onto CodeMentor, found Michael, and asked him to skip the mentorship part and please just fix this problem for us. Michael had the code working in under an hour. Oh, and then he took the time to explain everything. Hire this guy. He's a game changer.
