Director Boom Online Marketing

"Ed has been a great team member during his work experience at Boom, getting stuck straight in to the work he was asked to do, including research and learning outside of work to pick up new languages and tools that he had to work with. He integrated excellently with the team, far from the stereotypical "developer" type!

He has taken to PHP, JavaScript and WordPress development extremely well for someone with little previous exposure to it and has brought ideas and innovative approaches to the tasks in hand.

We've been really pleased with his work and he has been as good as I expected when I first met him during the Nottingham Trent University/Institute of Directors £10 Challenge. I have no doubt he'll go far in whatever direction he chooses to take his programming career."

"I have been a part of the same team as Ed since joining the company in November, and every experience I have had with him has been a positive one. Ed always demonstrates a quick understanding of all requirements and tasks that need to be carried out and consistently produces high quality work.

Ed has a strong work ethic, and a willingness to learn and ask questions on anything he is unsure of. He is always the first person to offer to do my code reviews, and will make suggestions on how things could be done differently where appropriate.

He is a great team player and a pleasure to work alongside, and I hope that we are able to work together again soon!"
