Comment: "Kelley has been a huge help in allowing us to determine our software direction. He has advised at the highest level all the way down to the implementation details, when needed. Based on our needs, Kelley has been guiding us toward TDD and SOLID and these methods hold great promise for the future of our software. I've also checked in with a few other software managers I know and all wish they had this guidance and direction at the start of their company. Kelley is a trusted advisor and I highly recommend his services and his message." -- Casey Hare, Founder, Angstrom Designs
