I've worked with many people in my career. Here's what a few of them have to say about me.
Ciaran is a rare breed developer. Not only cross trained in a variety of programming languages both front and back end, he also possessed a solid eye for design, making implementation on projects a breeze. Beyond his tactical development skills, Ciaran also served as our tech lead on many projects showing a great balance between technical strategy and implementation. I recommend him highly.
