"I had a pleasure of working with Edwin on a business critical eCommerce platform modernisation program at Next. It was obvious from the beginning that Edwin is a great team player as he always volunteered to help and provide the required support in the Agile team.
Being very eager to learn about new technology and being a quick learner makes Edwin a great asset to any team and organisation. As a Software Engineer, Edwin has an excellent way of communicating complex technical information and breaking it down while working with business stakeholders to ensure everyone's understanding. I would very much welcome an opportunity to work with Edwin on any future projects. "

"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!
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've had the very great pleasure of working with Edwin on a number of projects at the Open University and found him to be a developer of exceptional talent and efficiency. He has an extremely creative approach to problem solving and a real passion for accessibility. In many circumstances where a requested feature has been inadvisable to implement, Edwin has always provided a well-thought through solution that respects the intention of the original brief.

"I had the pleasure of having Edwin work as a developer on my team at Next.
Although we worked together for only a few short months, I found him to be very dependable and willing to take on responsibility. He didn't need to be asked to do something, instinctively knowing that when something needed to be done he would step in and take care of it. Always uses his initiative and willing to ask questions and take in knowledge to develop himself further.
I'd be more than happy to have Edwin on any of my teams in the future and wish him all the very best."

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.

"Edwin is a colleague of mine at The Open University. When I joined the team, Edwin was assigned to be my mentor, and I couldn’t have asked for a better person to facilitate that role! - Not just because of the valuable help he has given me, but also because he is an incredibly friendly and joyous person to work with.
If I had one word to describe Edwin it would be: Innovator. The work I have seen him produce has always been to an incredibly high standard, and he is always striving to go above and beyond. At the same time, he is always happy to help and share his knowledge where possible. He has a real flair for explaining and teaching concepts in a way which is understandable.
It has been a real pleasure to work with Edwin, which is a feeling I can be certain is echoed from anyone else who knows him. I would definitely recommend Edwin to any team, to which I’m sure he would be a great asset."
