Experience highlights

Wezz is one of the quickest most prolific developers out there. Seeing him work is a sheer joy; even though you have no way of keeping up with what he's doing, you can just smile at the results. What's more is this guy is a great all-rounder and knows his way around the turf in all kinds of development environments, not just front-end development. My personal pick for a start-up
