“This provider really should charge more then what he is requesting. His skills are unmatched as far as Ruby on Rails goes and is a steal for anyone working on such a project. He also goes above and beyond what is expected and what really surprised me was his ability to read someone elses code which we as buyers all know about and be able to work off of that! I recommend this provider for anyone!!”
