I am fairly new to Freelancer (but not at development), so I only have a few Freelancer "references" and "credits" so far. Personal references and examples of various projects, both small and large, will gladly be provided upon request.
Our project was to re-write some ugly Fortran code from the 1970's into modern C++.
Bill did a fantastic job translating the code and massivly improving the user interface.
Bill was consistent in communication, even being 13 hours different. His dedication to our project was apparent.
His high degree of experience shines thru his code. He's patient to explain aspects you don't understand.
Would work with him again, absolutely, and would be our first choice for any software development.
He is very knowledgeable, innovative, works purposefully and results-oriented.
Adheres to the project framework and project costs.
Will continue to give him follow orders, am very satisfied with his work.
Bill is a joy to work with. Not only is he adept at figuring optimal solutions for the project, he anticipates additional potential needs and integrates those solutions to the project at hand. Communication updates are fantastic. Highest marks possible!

The Software Bug Book: Thoughts on Software Quality
Developing, managing the development, and selling software applications require entirely different skills sets.
For developers, this book explains how to detect and correct Memory Leaks, Resource Leaks, Deadlocks, Data Races, and other complex bugs. For non-tech people, this book introduces some jargon that you should be familiar with, introduces "bugs" in an easy-to-understand way, and gives insight into what to realistically expect from your developers.
