  • Ferenc is the best contractor that I ever met on Elance. He is highly talented, professional and hard worker. He did the task exactly I asked him to do. Ferenc completed the task and made sure I was completely satisfied. He was very responsive to questions and concerns. I will indeed be a repeat customer as I am very pleased with my website!

  • Ferenc is a very talented PHP developer. He quickly got to grips with what was required and delivered everything (and more) that I expected of him. I would happily work with him again.

  • I would most definitely re-hire pappfer and I highly recommend his services.
