100% Thrilled Clients and Colleagues
I'm proud to say that, in over 8 years as a freelancer, I have never had an unhappy client. Not only that, I've consistently exceeded their expectations.
Here's what some of them had to say about our work together:
"Daniel is a rare beast, understanding the big picture, technically and commercially, whilst being able to identify and define the minuscule detail that will make the wider vision achievable. Equally adept at designing features and writing complex code, he works at a pace unrivalled. Add to that a great sense of humour and deep knowledge on the weird and the wonderful, he was a great colleague and is now a good friend."
"Daniel is a very reliable and accountable team member. One can count on him to own a project, consider all its implications, question everything that looks unclear, implement and deliver quality code."
"He's one of the best mentors I've had. He has such a great way of explaining a topic, helping you figure out solutions by yourself, but also get you unstuck. He can easily walk you through his train of thought, or debugging skills. This was great for me especially as I got ramped up with backend work. It hugely helped with my confidence levels, because he also has great pep talks."
"Daniel articulates himself really clearly, and can communicate his decision making process quickly and clearly. He is always happy to support, and clearly cares deeply about the team and its members."
"Daniel is good at explaining both how something works, but also why. This is true of off-the-shelf technology products (e.g. mysql or redis) and also code that he has contributed to. This was invaluable in getting me up-to-speed on working in our ecosystem."
"Something Daniel does really really well is frame problems. Often a project seems confusing and ill-defined and Daniel is great at making it relatable / understandable."
"Daniel is incredibly competent and asks great questions, I really enjoy working on projects together with him. He's also very open to feedback, open and honest when sharing his thoughts and one of the kindest people I know :)"
"Daniel's an extremely competent developer. He shoulders a lot of responsibility for the team. He's a constant sanity-checker, and questions team decisions reasonably, which keeps us pragmatic in our approach to engineering. He's a great mentor and teacher, too."
"I hired Daniel to build MoverTrends.com for my company. He was able to not only quickly intuit the requirements, but somehow clarify them better for me than I could myself. As a developer, Daniel has a razor sharp attention to detail as well as the capacity to see the big picture and beyond. Developers are often difficult to work with for one reason or another. Daniel is that rare exception where developing applications with him consistently results in a great experience."
"Just want to tell you how much I appreciate working with you.
You are really a fantastic developer and a great guy. You have such a sharp eye for detail and at the same time a
vision large enough to see the big picture and beyond. I look forward to working with you long
into the future."

"As a financial solution provider we outsource a great deal of our development work. Our relationship with Daniel Magliola is without a doubt the best outsourcing experience we have ever had.
Daniel, unlike other providers, will take the time to review and analyse each project with us, often pointing out issues and considerations that would have cost us a lot more had they come up during the development. He is dedicated to meeting his deadlines and makes himself available at all hours to support and manage any unexpected problem that arise. I would recommend Daniel to any company in search of a reliable, long term software development partner."
"From start to finish Daniel was the perfect man for the job. We were setting up a fun virtual games website and communicated a few game ideas to Daniel. He gave a perfect estimate of the amount of work needed and time to completion, and he executed on those ideas. The animations were smooth, the games felt fast, and they were able to handle a large number of users.
Our customers were consistently thrilled with the way the games worked, and the games were a big success immediately after launch. In a recent survey 74% of users said the well finished games he programmed contributed "moderately or significantly" to the fun of the site."
"Daniel is one of the best programmers that I've had the pleasure of working with in my more than 10 years of online business experience. He's smart, hard-working, and best of all truly cares in his heart about the quality of the product that he delivers.
We run a paid online service with a large cashflow, and the software was designed by Daniel to be incredibly efficient and deliver the quality our users have come to expect.
On one occasion, our server went down for external reasons. Even though it was late at night, Daniel responded within minutes and stuck around for hours to help solve our problem.
We chose Daniel because he had wide experience over a number of technologies, and on a follow-up phone call showed the enthusiasm that we knew would make the difference for us.
Daniel not only does the job fast, but he does it right. When other programmers glance through the code he's written, they're always amazed by its clarity and efficiency.
We are especially happy because his turnaround time is fast, he's great at communicating expectations, and he manages himself superbly well.
If you want a person to do the job right, I'd recommend Daniel Magliola for your project"
"Daniel is great to work with because of his great ability to easily grasp the requirements of the task at hand. His repertoire of skills allow him to work fast without ever compromising the quality of his excellent work. Problem solving is a particular strength of Daniel and therefore we've never been without a solution when we've needed one. To top it all off Daniel's great personality make him really easy to get along with. I highly recommend him."
"Daniel is a truly excellent developer and technical project manager. He takes pride in delivering a great product and finding the best solutions to any problem that might appear during development. I know I can rely on Daniel, which allows me to focus on other parts of the project and get an optimal overall result."
"I couldn't be happier with the work. Daniel is smart, productive, easy to work with, easy to contact, and very helpful. As it turned out, I was busy with another project at the time and didn't always have time to monitor Daniel's work closely. No problem, though... Daniel proved more than capable of producing excellent work that met and surpassed the desired business goals, without requiring any help or oversight. I have been involved with software development for 20+ years, and this is truly one of the most pleasant experiences I have had with a contractor."
"I've had the pleasure of working with Daniel on a number of projects and without exception the project has been completed on time and with excellent results. Daniel's ability to quickly understand the spirit of the project and create his own stories in a short period of time, followed by quick and agile development makes Daniel someone I highly recommend. I would not hesitate to reach out to Daniel to work on future projects."
"Working with Daniel has been the best out of 40+ development experiences. His ability to manage is impeccable. His insights into the technical aspects of the project are very deep, addressing issues ahead of time that may have been unforeseeable. And we have lots of fun brainstorming the creative vs. the analytical mind."
"I have worked with Daniel twice. We first did a part-time startup called Hear a Blog in 2010, working with .Net technologies, and then we collaborated again in 2012-2013 in my startup, Watu.
Daniel is brilliant and he’s one of the most productive people I know. He is very good at finding creative solutions that require minimal disruption to the code. At Watu he was able to iterate really fast on features and bug fixes following the demands of our customers, who were very happy to deal with Daniel.
As a disclaimer, we are friends, but I have many coder friends and Daniel is the one I chose to work with, twice."
"I could not have asked for a better experience. Daniel took an extremely complicated project and delivered a superior product on time and above our highest expectations. We will use them in the future for ALL our programming needs."
"Daniel Magliola has proven to be in a class by himself. Not only is he an excellent programmer but he has a great ability to listen and understand the needs of our company! He has exceeded our expectations! Our growing company owes a great deal of our success to his quick and efficient programming and people skills. We look forward to working with Daniel on future projects."
