David is a talented software developer whom I have known for about four years both as my student and my colleague. Speaking both as a professor and software professional of 30+ years, David ranks among the very best young software engineers I have known. Were I still in industry, I would not hesitate to hire him as a key member of my technical staff. I recommend him wholeheartedly as a skilled, motivated, and affable software developer of the highest caliber.

David is an excellent developer, communicator, and a trustworthy partner on any project I have worked with him on. I have been working with David for over 12 months now, and he has consistently executed in a timely and professional manner. He doesn't take short cuts. He is well organized which allows him to provide realistic expectations for project timelines. David has helped our organization develop a software tool that is now our major competitive advantage over our competition. I strongly recommend David for your project.
