    Ruby on Rails 3.1 developer
    I hired Shahid Ali as a team member for Haseeb Kahn. While the communication and cooperation was excellent. The pace of the work was significantly slower than I would expect at nearly $40 an hour. For a Pakistani developer, that is a very high price and I would expect fairly top notch work at a good speed. The quality of the code was ok, but not anything special. He wrote a few specs for very basic ruby methods like 'create' which were a waste of time and didn't use any sensical short cuts like 'validate_presence_of' and opting instead to write his own methods. So again a bit of a waste of time due to lack of familiarity with rspec I think. Pretty goo if you're paying maybe $20 and hour.
