Oftentimes, I would describe a client's needs and Dan would be able to develop a solution through his coding and product knowledge. I knew that anything Dan QC'ed would be client-ready and free from any technical errors. Furthermore, Dan was innovative and creative in his approach. Dan would make a great asset to any product team. "
