I started programming when I was twelve, so now it has been more than 15 years of experience (last 10 of them working in the IT industry).

I think of every project I work on as of something more than simply "sell your brain and get the money". To finish a project may mean a lot of things, but to me the very first thing in the row is quality, and I would rather turn down an offer than code something I could not be proud of.

I look forward to hearing from you, and rest assured that the results will meet your requirements and expectations.

  Ivan has gone way beyond normal coding once again. He has spent many hours with me on this project testing / debugging and just making sure I was happy. He implemented several changes from the original spec and was ALWAYS very responsive to email communications. Highly recommend him to anyone seeking programming work.

  Ivan goes above and beyond! He makes sure that you are 100% happy, and works with you during testing to ensure that every possible outcome is covered. He does not just do what you tell him, he asks questions, provides other ideas, and makes suggestions on how to improve your idea. I cannot say enough good things about Ivan.

Prompt, helpful comments throughout. Ivan asked the right questions to help ensure the requirements were met and understood the project better than I did!

  Skilled, communicative, intelligent, able. Ivan is a technically superior individual with near psychic abilities to accomplish what we needed. Does he work around the clock? Seems like he did with the quick e-mail replies and yet being so physically far from the U.S. He was willing to work around unintended specifcation issues and problems making our project a dream come true.
Highly recommended!!!

  Ivan was very friendly from the beginning of the project, but most important he knows exactly what he's doing and does it in a timely manner. Project was completed and delivered 3 days before the deadline, which is a long time considering the total length of the project. Throughout the work Ivan was very responsive, always listened to what I had to say. I only had to explain things once to him and he understood precisely what I want. I will not think twice before choosing him for future work.

  Thanks Ivan. You've been an excellent coder to work with and I really couldn't have asked for any better! The communication was great throughout the course of the entire project which made it possible for Ivan to deliver the goods within a small amount of time (well ahead of schedule) and to get it working exactly like I wanted in the first place! Will definately be looking for you for my next projects.
