“Practical, brilliant developer and maintenance free” is the phrase that comes to mind when I think about Alain. I've had the pleasure to manage him for 5 years, above all, I was impressed with Alain’s ability to study a project or a complex mission, handle it easily and solve any problems encountered in his way to achieve its goal and, of course, Alain would be a true asset for any positions requiring thinking, developing or achieving any goals and it comes with my heartfelt recommendation.

Amichai Zuntz / Executive VP Sales & Business Development at NoProblem 

Alain is one of the most talented people I had a chance to work with, as a business development/sales leader he managed to fulfil my requirements in the most efficient way and always ahead of schedule. He is hard working, goal oriented and ambitious. Alain is a real asset to any organisation and I would be glad to make this recommendation verbally.

Ron Aharoni / Product Manager at Matrix

Alain is the kind of employee you want by your side. Alain is highly motivated, always thinking of the big picture (and not only at the code level) and performed easily, on the best side, every dev request I delivered him. I managed Alain in two projects and both were very successful!
