“Jeff Jones was a pleasure to work with during my tenure at Caesars. He was the lead architect, designer and developer of many high profile projects; one of those projects being Prism (real time marketing at the slot). His knowledge and skill-set of Web/Flash development along with his motivation will lead any company's vision to reality. Not only was he able to deliver his projects on time, but he also introduced innovative ideas to the table, which resulted in new revenue for the company. I recommend Jeff.” ~ Billy Cao Senior Programmer Analyst Caesars Entertainment Corporation 3/9/2012

“Jeff has the experience to build an application from end to end--database to the rich GUI. He came into a project that used a proprietary messaging format on top of a proprietary network, and older languages. Jeff was able to split the code base to apply fixes to production while updating a separate branch to a more recent version while pointing out where improvements could be made for usability, testing, and supportability in both. He's great to work with and will teach you as much as you want to know, as well as learn as much as you can teach him.” ~ Darby Grady QA Engineer Cantor Gaming 2/15/2012

“Jeff combines strong design and development expertise with excellent project management skills, and most importantly, the ability to lead by example, and successfully drive a team to meet tough deadlines. Based on these skills, he's someone I’d want to work with any time, as I know I can count on his expertise, leadership and strong work ethic.” ~ David Witt Sr. UX Developer Symphony Teleca 7/13/2012

“Jeff worked on several contracts for us where he did outstanding work. I would highly recommend Jeff for any projects that you might have. He is detail oriented and always provides outstanding work.” ~ Trey Gundrum Director of Operations at Insight Global 4/12/2012
