Here are some of my recommendations
In my 20 years in technology, I can count on one hand how many people posses the raw technology and business savvy that Andrew possesses. Whether he is building an application, designing a web site, or installing a complex CRM application, he does it quickly, accurately, and with the best customer service skills around. He has an innate ability to hear business needs and apply them to technology. He thinks beyond where the normal technologist thinks, taking into consideration the marketing, sales, support, and real-world needs of the customer.
Whether it is mobile marketing, web development, hardware, database design, or application integration, he spans so many technologies that he is an ideal one-stop-shop for anyone who needs help with their business. He looks for innovative ways to solve problems with high-quality and low-costs.

in the world of the interwebz, Andrew is 95% zOMG and only 5% n00b (we can’t all be perfect).
and if you don’t know what that means, then you should contact him. seriously. right now. stop reading this review and email him.
did you? because it’s rare that you’ll find a more thoughtful technology expert. he’s intellectually curious beyond belief. it’s the Andrew’s of the world that actually make technology work.
stop reading this and contact him.
still here? ok, he’s dedicated beyond belief. when we worked together, i asked for him to build stuff we’d never seen before. overnight. and he’d deliver.
AJ is an excellent problem solver, a real human computer. He gained a reputation at OPIE Software as the go-to-guy if you encounter a bug or need code reviewed, as he would kindly solve everyone’s problems with ease. To me it didn’t look like he was working on a single project, but everyone’s projects all at once. His knowledge and experience with multitudes of technologies make him an incredible asset to any team. I personally learned a lot about how to be a better programmer while working with AJ, and I am very thankful for that experience.
AJ always has his mind on the latest technologies and frameworks that are available. His motivation for finding new and intriguing solutions to the problems that we face in the technology industry definitely brings to light things that can easily be missed. He is a hard worker with many qualities that I found valuable while working together.
Having worked with AJ for over three years, I can say with absolute certainty that there are few people in the world that can generate and implement fresh ideas like he can. AJ is as talented a programmer and planner as I have ever known, as capable and intelligent as they come. He possesses a real gift for moving projects forward in an efficient and timely manner, and has used that gift again and again to ensure that various projects are completed with results that exceed initial expectations. I’ve never seen him give up. I’ve never seen him fail. If you are looking for someone to join your team, or to lead it, AJ certainly won’t disappoint.

AJ is a very detail-oriented programmer who worked hard to learn more about our clients. His work was always well thought out and he regularly met his deadlines. AJ was also able to see how pieces of software were valuable to our clients as well as how satisfied clients were critical to the future of our company.

While Serving as Director of University Relations at Mobile Campus, Andrew was the best IT person I have worked with. He has a vast knowledge of current technology and is extremely capable of conveying this knowledge in a way that less “tech savvy” individuals can understand it. When I worked with Andrew I was always comfortable in having him attend meetings with me due to his ability to communicate clearly and effectively, and the professional manner in which he conducted business. I offer my highest recommendation for Andrew Tatum.
