  How come I can't select a rating of 15-SUPER ABOVE EXCELLENT? This coder delivered the project and EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS. I have had dozens of projects done here on RAC and I have found only a few that are truly GREAT PROGRAMMERS and Praveen is definitely one of them. I almost don't want to speak this highly of him so that he will be available to do more of my projects ;) He will definitely get more work from me. Thanks for you hard work!

  Here is more praise for Praveen Menon, who is as I stated in a previous comment, extremely talented and creative, as well as fast and fair. Sent me a demo minutes after the first bid, understood the program inside and out, and made it differently and sleeker than everyone else had. He would go onto anyone's list as a top programmer, because he's already on mine.

  Praveen is exceptionally professional with his work. I had my program done and ready to go within hours of the first request. He was one of the only ones who submitted a working and creative demo within minutes of the first bid, and automatically I knew he was going to get the job. A very talented programmer.

  This is far most the best programmer I have ever worked with. Praveen treats your projects with great care. Before she actually starts on your project she does detailed research, then provides you an extensive Word Document with all the details she has planned. She is a awsome programmer to work it. Basically, you just hire her and never have to worry about the project again. She will take care of it. If a problem arises, shes quick to fix them. GREAT JOB and welcome to RAC.
