+“Dan is outstanding to say the least. He comes up with brilliant,
+ creative, simple solutions to solve complex problems (which saves you
+ money!). He understands internet marketing and internet business so he
+ can build programs that are incredibly useful to you. He knows how to
+ "think ahead" when programming to allow expandability, scalability and
+ reliability to all the programs he designs (so you are not re-designing
+ programs from scratch in 6 months when you want to change a feature -
+ which is so common with developers! - but NOT Dan!).
+ Developers/Programmers like Dan are 1 in 1000. If you hire him, hang
+ onto him, because you have a true gem!”
