  Words cannot adequately describe the quality of the finished product and the professionalism in which the work was carried out.

As other buyers have already attested, Dabas works very quickly. Besides having thorough knowledge of the platform, he asked all the right questions to really understand the project and sent at least one progress report per day. He also suggested a solution that I think made the final program many times better.
