Peter Poulsen Jul 06, 2015

Marton was AWESOME!! He read through my issue description, and before I even started the call, he checked with me a quick couple of things to make sure I didn't have another issue altogether. In less than 10 minutes he was able to sort out my problem, spotting the 1 line I was missing in my code, and taught me something the library's own docs didn't have!
Andres Mendez Jun 30, 2015

Extremely knowledge and explained things very clearly and also brought plenty of options to the table - some options which I had already thought about which was reassuring, and some new options also.

William Nieman Apr 28, 2015

Marton's BigQuery expertise was invaluable once again!

Marton helped me create a solution then in addition, helped me double-check to ensure the result was accurate.
Justin Marciszewski Apr 27, 2015

Quick and to the point and very helpful with related tips. Highly recommend
Adrian Rich Apr 18, 2015

Marton was a pleasure to work with on a BigQuery & Google Analytics related project. I had trouble understanding a query and Marton not only helped me understand it but also helped me write new, more complex BigQuery query that gave me a better result.
Justin Marciszewski Apr 17, 2015

It was a pleasure working with Marton. He is extremely knowledgeable and by far, the best BigQuery expert I've worked with. He was able to help me understand and edit a complex BigQuery query and generate valuable insights from the Google Analytics data within my BigQuery dataset.

Marton was great, quick to reply and was able to educate me and help fix the issue at hand. Thanks again.
Scott Carlton Jan 09, 2015

He located the problem when nobody could. He even stopped the time completely when he was thinking. (and for the rest of session since he understood my financial limit.) He took one really complex query taking up to 20 seconds and reduced it to 0.8 seconds. Thank you again!
Francis Dec 27, 2014

Patient, practical and very helpful. Resolved the issue with ease. Also, as a first time user, took me through CodeMentor's workflow in a way that will likely lead me back to its service(s).
Luis M. Dec 26, 2014

Marton was excellent! He resolved the problem I came to him with and he discovered and solved a much bigger problem that I wasn't even aware of until he looked at my code. He also was great at helping me understand exactly what he was doing to resolve the problems, so I could learn for the future. Thank you so much!!

Jamey Grant Dec 08, 2014

good start to building a PHP wrapper for an API
Steve Dec 05, 2014

Marton is great, really thorough and a tenacious problem solver. He came up with a great solution that interfaced with a fairly buggy API, resulting in very robust code that works consistently.
Matt B Oct 30, 2014

Marton is fantastic, he is very responsive and works fast, but more importantly he was able to help us solve a non-trivial technical challenge involving multiple scripts, multimedia feeds, and an API which leaves a bit to be desired. In additional, Marton was great at walking me through the code, explaining his entire approach to mitigating a number of challenges. I would highly recommend this Mentor.
Matt B Oct 24, 2014

Was great in helping me understand my problem and finding a solution. Will work with him in the future!
James Oct 24, 2014

This was a super helpful mentoring !!! He did everything he could to get the code working and he explained it to me step by step.

Gabi de Maeztu Oct 22, 2014

As usual, Marton was a great help. Today's session we accomplished quite a bit. Exactly what I needed.
Phil Warton Oct 02, 2014

Marton helped me to figure out alternatives for my problem. He suggested me two search engines setups in order to improve my search performance and quality and gave me hints on scalability. He is really prepared, confident and has always an answer for the questions I asked him. He doesn't waste time or try to keep you online more, it was a very good experience.
Leonardo Rossi Sep 30, 2014

Marton is very knowledgeable and patient. The code that he was asked to look at was the result of 2 years of various devs work, some of it very convoluted, so to make any progress at all in the first hour was a big plus. I look forward to working with Marton again.
Phil Warton Sep 23, 2014

He was really helpful
Devin Flynn Sep 21, 2014

Marton was great!! He got right to the heart of the matter quickly. I liked how he listened to me and while he was assertive, he was also willing to allow me to run the session in a way that worked best for me. Very knowledgeable. He helped me with a Sphinx Search filtering issue.
Craig Lillard Sep 20, 2014

Good combination of mentoring and helping me resolve my issues. Top notch service!

Matt Lody Aug 06, 2014

Mentor was thorough and explained very well. He was knowledgeable.
Montroe Headd Jul 30, 2014

Yet again Marton was brilliant at solving the two problems I had. Very quick, approachable and friendly mentor. Solved two problems in around 15 minutes and then gave advice on how-to optimise my URL / folder structure for my data-driven website in the future. Will be scheduling further code mentor sessions with Marton in the future and highly recommend him for PHP and MySQL help.
Andrew Cooper Jul 30, 2014

Marton is very, very knowledgeable, patient, and knows how to get straight to the root of the issue. He helped me decrease the load time of pulling external data into my mobile app, and even pointed out other optimization techniques to increase the performance. I'm very pleased with his help and look forward to working with him again.
Candace Mitchell Jul 29, 2014

Marton was the perfect mentor to handle my jQuery issue. Thanks!!! Will definitely be contacting him again for future needs.

Great mentor, goes through everything step by step!
Danish Akhtar Jul 21, 2014

Marton was brilliant at not only solving the issue I had for some time, but also helpful in fixing some errors in my coding and helping to optimize the existing routing of the URL's. Everything is now solved with the issue I had, although I do have others that I need help with and I will be arranging more mentoring sessions with Marton in the coming weeks. Highly recommended. Marton clearly knows what he is doing and is highly experienced in PHP.
Andrew Cooper Jul 17, 2014

Martin helped me rethink my whole strategy and helped me accomplish my goal in a very efficient manner.
Scott Hause Jul 15, 2014

Marton saved the day. My developer disappeared from the face of the Earth. It took Marton no time to run through my PHP script and solve my issues. He is now my go to guy. Will be working with him on future projects. Thank you Marton!
Robert Hayes Jul 15, 2014

Great technical guy who resolved a long-standing issue with my Laravel app. Amazingly competent and had an immediate understanding of my app.
Andy Jul 02, 2014

Great session! Marton was able to understand my code and an API he had never worked with very quickly in order to resolve my issue
Lucas Jun 14, 2014

Was very good, would definitely use again.
Andrew Webb Jun 09, 2014

Marton knows what he is advising and is able to suggest workarounds and alternatives. Very fruitful session.

Lorenzo Pirondini Apr 11, 2014

Great mentor. Solved my issue quickly.
Jonathon Apr 05, 2014

Thanks for your help. I know we had some technical connection issues, but you resolved them quickly and we were able to connect via Skype.
Hanna Kutcher Mar 30, 2014

Marton was extremely helpful. I'm a newbie with some fairly ugly code, but even so, he was quickly able to determine the issue as improper syntax with my version of jQuery, which may have taken me weeks to solve. He then provided me with help to build additional JQuery commands for my specific project. Great work! I would highly recommend Marton to anyone who needs javascript help. Kyle
Kyle Mar 16, 2014

Everything went well, the issue was solved. Marton looked at the HTML/JS and found the problem, edited the files on my screen, and explained a few of the reasons why it wasn't working.
Skyler Dache Mar 15, 2014
