Go Back

The disappearing programmer

If you looking for someone to build an application for your business, the last thing you need is a Houdini wannabe. I’m continually amazed by programmers who take on projects, start the effort, and then perform their magic act by disappearing, ignoring emails, phone calls, and texts for days or longer.

Whether they are an employee or a consultant, professionalism means regular communication. I know technologists have a reputation for communicating poorly, but that’s no excuse. Answer your phone already! (Bonus points for proactive rather than reactive communication.)

What the critics are saying...

Avonelle is an incredibly talented software developer. She works fast, is economical, and offers great insights into the project at hand. She is also not afraid to speak up when she has concerns about a decision or approach. We’ve utilized her talents on many of our software development projects over the years.
