"I was worried that you as a programmer would be too focused on details and tech and would not understand what I want to achieve. I felt comfortable when you made extensive research and that you asked a lot of questions for understanding my goals. Your regular reports are great and give a great overview how the project progresses. I would be happy to involve you in another project."

Testimonial: Brian Bollinger

"The projects Alec tackled required technical knowledge and a unique understanding of the investment industry. I wasn't sure how quickly Alec would be able to navigate these different challenges. He took time upfront to understand the ins and outs of what I was trying to accomplish. From there, he outlined a simple, clear roadmap we could follow to meet my goals.

Alec helped me gain new insights into how my plugin functions and why certain pages of my website were running slow. His work was instrumental in improving the overall performance of my website and alleviated much of my stress. His clear and concise recommendations were easy to implement, and the performance gains were immediate and impactful.

With Alec's work and insights, I gained the peace of mind I needed to continue growing my company without worrying about the technical challenges that could trip me up. Alec's development services were worth every penny. He immediately improved the user experience of my website while helping ensure my company had the technical foundation for growth in the long term."
