As someone with over 20 years of software development experience
and currently a small business owner, it has been a pleasure working
with Avonelle. In addition to being a talented developer, Avonelle also
has database expertise and system design skills. Avonelle is open
minded and willing to discuss various methodologies for achieving a
project goal. She is also not afraid to ask questions which is vital in
a software development project. Her up-front project cost (not
estimate) is very helpful in budgeting for a project.
