Experienced PM / Programmer needed to work for next 36 hours and form a team to debug a site

“If I could award MIke with higher ratings I would!!!We had an emergency job we needed done immediately with an impossible deadline and built in a crazy way, with the original backend architect out of communication range (so no real information or documentation to go by). Mike not only accepted that crazy job, even after it was explained that about 3 other potential contractor heroes before him failed, but he also took the challenge with no hesitation and worked an all nighter that first day for us going 20hours straight to make sure before he got some sleep our code was in good shape and ready to go for our overseas office to do some testing while he got a nap in. The man did miracles I have never seen before from a contractor and probably never will again. There was never a time where he didn't have a solution or solid recommendation. His knowledge and experience with the things he does is mind blowing and a true pleasure to watch. His communication with us throughout the process was outstanding. He was very open and honest throughout our contract with him, and he even recommended we bring down his rate from the "emergency mode work past bed time and weekends" price to his normal rate when he felt that the emergency was over. We didn't even have to approach him about that. Just a class act all around and a great and friendly guy. Some say Jedi masters are just a made-up fictional individual, but after meeting and having the honor to work with Mike I now know and fully understand they do exist in this world and Mike is truly one.Thanks Mike for being our hero!!! Have fun at disneyland ;)Your friends for life, ~ Team Awesome”
