“Yuri was a great contractor. His English skills are, indeed, very strong and he is incredibly skilled with python and the django framework.In the end, I employed his help on a couple of separate projects and he made them both com alive. He took my terribly underspecified requirements and built up a functional site with minimal outside help necessary.I hope to work with Yuri more in the future but was finding it tough to have enough work each week to truly keep him busy.Dave”
