About My Services

My name is Michael and I've been involved and modding IPB for over 10 years now. My primary focus is IPB applications and plugins but I also offer support/consult services and very basic skin customization.
 
Over the last decade I've created many different applications, plugins and mods. My first mod created (Guest Message) is still in production and has been maintained and upgraded for years now. I've created and support some of the biggest 3rd party applications in the IPS Marketplace. But I just as much love creating those smaller mods/hooks that despite there size add so much value to a forum.

Greetings.

I hired Mike to modify his "collection system" to fit my own needs for my community. I needed very specific modifications for my project: Additional fixed fields, a hook, some deep changes in one section and additional language strings.

Price and time frame for the project were reasonable. Project was delivered in time. Small bugs were fixed before applying the changes and 2 or 3 things that required attention a few days later were also fixed.

Very satisfied with the final outcome.

Mike has taken two ideas we had to improve our forum, and made them a reality. Both are working wonderfully. He is responsive and is available for troubleshooting help after delivery. Cost effective and works with your schedule. Great programmer.

Mike just pulled me out of a bind even though he was extremely busy by creating a quick hook that I needed for a very old version of IPB (have not updated due to a custom hooks & skin).  I own at least 70% of his work on my older version.  

Mike is a straight shooter and very easy to deal with.  In my opinion his knowledge is flawless for a newbie like me.  I will be using him in the near future to finally update to the newest IPB when it comes out.

Many thanks Mike!

Prognosis:

I will say this, Mike! You are a very professional and courteous gentleman! You have proven yourself time and time again. And while I don't see the type of service you provide, even in the real world, any more. It is a breath of fresh air to see you go above and beyond your duties as a programmer to help the little guy!

Recommendation: Hire this guy when he is available as he has yet to let me down, I own 90% of his work.

Overall: 5/5; Recommend him for whatever your needs are.

I came to Michael with a request for a custom project, he has been fantastic throughout the period of working on the project and beta testing (currently still under testing). We have came back with changes and they have been implemented very quickly.

Pleasure to work with and would highly recommend.

I came to Mike with a custom request for "emoticons categories".
It was not easy to move my special wishes but Mike has fast reacted to every change wish and has moved to my full satisfaction.
Price and time frame for the project were very good.
My users love emoticons and because of his great work they enjoy now more than 500 very well sorted emoticons.

Mike has hepled me with a lot of things to an affordable price, and if I afterwards found a small bug somewhere or if I wanted to make some more modifications - he helped me with that also. I'm very grateful!

Worked with me on a custom plugin to display thumbnails next to topics. He went above and beyond by requirements by adding a ton of features he thought would help make it better (they did!). He put up with my constant requests for tweeks. 

Would 100% recommend to anyone looking for a great dev.

I hired Mike to develop two plugins which seemed impossible (or really hard) to make. Both plugins are working without any problems. I'm very happy with the results. I'd definitely recommend Mike.

Michael is very professional and he won't stop until all your issues are resolved. The price was very reasonable and he stuck to his part of the deal, even though I am sure that some unexpected complications caused a delay and more work then anticipated.

Mike is the most professional and competent IP Board developer that I have worked with, I am so pleased with his work, that although he often has a long list of other work I do not mind waiting for his services. I highly recommend to work with Mike.

I have been purchasing products from Mike for about four years now. I have never had any major issues with any product and anytime I discover an issue, Mike has always been very quick to help me solve the problem. Mike has even been helpful enough to assist me with issues that are completely unrelated to any of his products. Most recently, I contacted Mike to request a custom modification to his Forms app. Mike got back with me very quickly and informed me he was a little tied up but to contact him again in a couple weeks. I contacted him after some time and he was glad to help. He had the customized product finished and in complete working order within a couple of days. And his prices are very cheap for the quality of work and the assistance he provides. Mike will always be my go-to developer. Thanks Mike!

Contacted Mike for a very particular modification that we needed in our forum regarding the donation system.

Mike created all our requested modifications, and created a whole new profile field for us.

He always replied in a very good time frame, and the price was very reasonable.

Will use him again for sure.

I can't express enough what a pleasure it was to work with Michael.  He is extremely professional and his skills are top notch.  It's been very difficult for me to find a reliable IPB coder, but now that I've found him, I am guaranteed to have my website exactly the way I want it.  

I highly recommend DevFuse for all your custom IPB apps, and sincerely look forward to working with him again!!

Where to start with Mike? (DevFuse) 

Mike has been nothing short of amazing. Honestly one of the best developers for IPBoard that I've worked with, well actually the best especially after all that he's done for me recently. 

I've used most of his apps for a period of time I think, but there's 3 that I mainly use and I'd say that they are vital pieces of my community. 

  • AutoWelcome
  • Forms
  • Donations

I'm not sure if there's any other group out there right now that uses Forms quite like my community does. On top of that we've gotten compliments from Developers and Leadership of such games like Battlefield for the way that we handle certain aspects of our community related to those games. And it wouldn't be that way if it weren't for the Forms Application from DevFuse. 

If you're looking for a solid and reliable developer, Mike is definitely the person for you. Not only has he gone above and beyond for the support of his apps, but he's also done the same to help me out with other developers apps as well when I've been in a bind. 

I highly recommend you use Mike for any projects you might have or any customization you might need to any of his current apps. His response time is great, does what he says he's going to do and always very personable on top of that!

 

Thanks for all your hard work Mike!

Over the years I have come to use 'DevFuse' and their services, in fact Mike has created quite a few of the plugins and applications I use with my sites/communities.

Not only do I know that any application or plugin will be well supported, I can be reassured that the coding is done perfectly and if any encounter technical difficulties, I know it will be resolved. I find Mike's knowledge of coding to be very impressive, not to mention his expertise of the IPS framework and system apps.

And I appreciate his help greatly when it comes to customizations.

Considering as I write this, it says he isn't available for hire proves how much his services are in demand.

I hold his ability as a third party coder, very highly and I am sure many others feel exactly the same way.

Requested for custom features from his Donation addon. Said he could do it. Got it done in the end and I'm happy with the custom work.

Only criticism is that he does take a while to respond back to messages, but all in all great developer

I needed a customization for Mike's "Forms" application, and he got it done exactly how I wanted it, as quickly as I needed it, and for a price that was surprisingly affordable. I definitely plan to work with him again in the future.

I'm new to Mike John's work and I must say my first impression is excellent. We are working through an issue and he seems to be staying right on top of it. High end app developers are rare in the online-forum-software-world; Mike John seems to be the exception.

I've been using Mike's plug-ins for quite a few years now, and he is the consummate professional and provides top-notch support.  Any help request, update request, etc. has always been responded to (and implemented) in a very timely manner.  You can't ask for better support.

I contacted Mike regarding a feature for my website, which seems very complicated from my point of view to create. In about 1.5 weeks Mike coded the application and sent me a beta to test.

Amazing stuff.

Mike is reasonably priced, very professional and very quick turnaround.

I highly recommend Mike to anyone who seeks a professional IPS developer for creating amazing apps for there site.

Thanks
