  Diego Calp is a role model for all other coders to emulate. Not only is he a superb coder, he is also professional, courteous, and an excellent communicator. His provided outstanding support throughout. He not only met my deadline, he was ahead of schedule! His coding was clean, organized, and well explained in comments section. This was my first time using his services, but I am very impressed in all aspects! I will certainly request his services for future projects if he is available. I recommend very highly considering him for your needs as well.

  Every once in a great while someone comes along that reinvigorates your belief in humanity. For this job posting I got dozens of bids, all over the map in ways it could be done. One guy told me there is commercial app out there that does this and he would charge me to tell me where to find it. Another said he could do it in a few hours in C# while another says it can't be done. Then Diego sends me a complete working program that does exactly what I want, no bragging, just "here you go, pay me only if you like it". Man that is my kind of programmer :) Anyway I did try it and it did work. I asked for some minor changes and Diego made them almost instantly. As far as I am concerned he has raised the bar higher than I have ever seen it go. I would say you are lucky to get him to work for you.
