Maximilian Schmitt has great skills as a developer/coder, and he is also a great writer. As an author for our 'Developing a gulp Edge' book he wrote some terrific pages, was always on time, if not early, for his deadlines, and he helped shape the book during the weekly meetings we had with all of the authors. I recommend him for any like project. He is a real pleasure to work with.
