I've worked 9 years in professional software development, for big companies like Disney and IBM, in Java/Unix, to several small LA startups, in Ruby on Rails. I worked for the pop star will.i.am in Hollywood, as the sole engineer creating our Rails APIs. We work on a wearable smartband (smartwatch + smartphone). I've also taught high school and college students over 8 years, in science, math, English, and AP Computer Science. I love teaching and think there's not enough support to help junior developers get to the next level.

It was frustrating working with Raymond. The video call was poor quality due to a bad connection on his end, which he complained about, even though it was my money on the clock. He didn't solve my problem, and once I was out of $50 of credit, he asked if I wanted to continue and just "pay him the rest though paypal". I said no, because he seemed no more capable than I am to solve this problem. I feel like I want a refund.

Raymond's a fantastic mentor! He's really friendly and patient. Not only did he help me realise the mistake I made, but he also gave me advice on programming as a career. I highly recommend him! :)

He may be good in many things but we were not able to resolved the issue on my project. I wish he had given up sooner because of the cost I have endured. I was able to fix the issue with an expert in 10 minutes after an inconclusive 90 minutes sessions with Raymond.

Raymond was a really great Mentor. He helped me work through the problem with a wealth of knowledge. Not only did I learn alot, I also picked up some cool gems and techniques that I will be using moving forward. He helped simplify the technical sytanx to something a beginner like me could comprehend and understand. Really Appreciated everything.

Raymond was great to work with. I am a very inexperienced coder and he made me feel great and pointed me towards finding my solution. He also showed me several tools that will help me going forward. Raymond is on my "go to" list. Very bright, very nice. A joy to work with.

Raymond not only helped me to resolve my Rails controller issue, but he also ensured that I understood what went wrong and preventative measures to avoid these mistakes in the future. I am happy with the exchange, and he will definitely be one my top pick for future Rails needs on this site. Highly recommended professional!
