What My Clients Say

In my search for Laravel 5 skills for an entire re-platform of studentrecipes.com I was fortunate enough to be introduced to Rui.
He quickly understood our requirements and gave me confidence in his ability early on by asking the right questions and making constructive suggestions on improving the server side aspect of the product.

As as developer myself it was important I could understand the code so I could make changes and add new features independently post launch.
Both the architecture and code quality enable me to do this with ease. Accurate estimates up front and on-going communication make dealing with Rui a positive experience from a business point of view also.

I'll be sure to use Rui again for a second phase and other future projects.
James Bailey, Student Recipes
Rui did a wonderful job taking a kernel of an idea for the MusicMosh project and turning it into a polished, functional site.

The quality of his code is excellent -- it's concise, well-encapsulated, and easy to understand.

He has shown great skill in using the Rails framework.

Rui also has excellent communication abilities, has contributed valuable ideas to the project, and has proven himself to be not just a skilled developer but also an important partner on the project.
Dan McCormick, MusicMosh
Rui is a top-shelf developer.

He is a very thorough programmer with excellent command of his craft. He documents his work clearly and consistently, writes lean code and is very knowledgeable of all the technologies that he'll need for the project.

He works fast and is self directed and at the same time follows directives to the smallest detail. He never hesitates to reach back to clarify issues if anything arises and his English is at a native speaker's level.

We are very happy with Rui's work and we highly recommend him.
Daniel Ruiz, oDesk
Rui has been a brilliant addition to our small team.

He has worked tirelessly in helping make this project a success and we will definitely hire him again for part two (and any other projects that come along!).
Sam Edney, CETA Software
Great work - great communication - great end product.

Will definitely work with Rui again.
Jason Purcell, oDesk
Rui built a full user account management/auth/registration system for a web app, using Laravel on a Digital Ocean Ubuntu LEMP stack.

He communicated very clearly and quickly, and finished the project with a very speedy turnaround time.

In addition to his Laravel and web app expertise he is proficient and adept in server management/configuration. He was flexible and intuitive during the discussion of the specs, and again during the delivery of the configured server.

We did all our communication via email, and his written english was perfect.

I recommend him in the highest of terms for web app, server config/admin, and PHP development, and will absolutely return to him for further projects.
Mark Heath, oDesk
Rui is quite nice to work with.

Would recommend.
