I have been working with Matt for several years now and am very happy with his work. He has been both an author and a technical editor for us, and his ability to thoroughly explain complex concepts in an easy-to-understand way is invaluable for us. He is also excellent at taking a new topic, researching it, and bringing a solid review of it to us. We are very glad he is a part of our team!

Matthew proved himself capable of grasping complex problems involving large datasets and programming stable solutions. He was always very focused and worked very hard at the right tasks. Matt was a good team member who interacted very well with fellow technical staff and other non-technical staff. I would not hesitate to recommend Matthew as a good PHP developer.
