What Others Say
Clint is a extremely gifted technologist with the ability to address problems with solutions that allowed our company to improve our processes and reduce costs. His proficiency with .Net and Ruby on Rails allowed him to mentor junior developers and design a framework for the development of a state of the art electronic health record system for behavioral health.
Clif Dawes, Corporate Information Technology Director Remuda Ranch
Clint is an excellent software engineer. He has a through understanding of Ruby On Rails and demonstrated ability to learn new skills quickly. His knowledge and expertize added to our team’s ability to deliver a complex application. Although Clint was a contract employee he was eventually made the sole developer on the project after other developers were pulled to work on another project. Clint was able to complete the original project on his own with minimal supervision. In addition he was able to consult on technical issues we had on other projects. Clint has an easy going personality and he fit well with our team. I and other developers recommended Clint for a permanent position. Unfortunately there was a hiring freeze so the company was not able to hire him.
