Hear From Our Clients

Ehsan Shariati

Functionland (Toronto, ON, Canada)

We used Winatalent for our react-native project at Functionland, and really happy that I gave it a try. We had used Upwork and Freelancer with 4 unsuccessful attempts for the same project before turning to Winatalent. The level of expertise we received from the developer was much higher than what we got from other platforms for the same amount of money. Moreover, the personalized support we received from their team during the process was invaluable. I extremely recommend using Winatalent and will definitely use it for my future projects.

I am really impressed by the quality of services I received from WINaTALENT. They were right on schedule, charged reasonable prices, were professional and courteous in dealings, and delivered items well before time. Their pipeline was so smooth and simple so that everyone with any level of knowledge can be their client no matter what the project is.

Offshore SQL developers

Many companies look to offshore or nearshore development to reduce costs and access specialized talent. When offshoring freelance SQL programmer, communication and time zone logistics need consideration. Vet offshore providers carefully based on reviews, referrals, and examples of past work. Ensure they follow best practices for security when accessing sensitive data. Leading offshore destinations for SQL developers include India, Poland, Ukraine and countries in Latin America. Rates for offshore contractors are often 30-50% less than U.S. or Western European-based talent. Just be sure to factor in extra coordination time. Carefully scoped project work can be a good fit for offshore SQL developers versus open-ended roles.

SQL CLR developers

  • SQL CLR developers have expertise in writing .NET code and assemblies that can be integrated with SQL Server databases.
  • They utilize the SQL Common Language Runtime (CLR) in SQL Server to create stored procedures, triggers, functions, aggregates, and more using .NET languages like C# or Visual Basic.
  • SQL CLR developers must have a solid grasp of T-SQL along with .NET programming skills to produce robust database objects that leverage the power of .NET within SQL Server.
  • Finding SQL CLR developers with knowledge of both .NET and T-SQL is critical for projects involving custom SQL CLR object creation.
  • SQL CLR opens up possibilities to implement programming logic and access framework features that are not possible in T-SQL alone.
  • Hiring an experienced SQL CLR developer allows you to build SQL Server solutions with greater extensibility, efficiency, and security.
  • Look for SQL CLR developers who can clearly explain what types of solutions are best suited for implementation via SQL CLR rather than T-SQL.
