David Chamberlain (Director of Development at Absolute Design)
Adam is a personable developer with a great capacity to learn. During my time managing Adam, his knowledge of and ability with Magento grew immensely, in no small part due to his dedication and eagerness to improve his own work and pursue best practices. I would not hesitate to recommend Adam to anyone looking for a highly competent Magento or PHP developer.
Darren Crawford (EMEA Technical Project Manager at Adobe)
Adam is an exceptional Lead Web Developer with excellent communication skills. He has advanced knowledge of Magento and PHP web development technologies together with a strong understanding of software architecture. He has a keen eye for detail, excellent business analysis and requirements capture skills, and always remain professional under pressure. It is rare that you come across technical talent such as Adam. I would happily recommend Adam to future employers looking for a professional and forward thinking Lead Web Developer that is capable of working in client facing roles.
Lei Tang (Digital Project Manager at MMT Digital)
Adam's one of the most technically gifted developers I have worked with during my time at Juno, and has greatly helped me expand my technical knowledge and passion for software. He has a great talent to adopt & integrate new technologies but also translate them into reusable solutions. He also holds the ability to inspire and teach his team to think outside of the box during inception and execution. He's very much a stickler when it comes to the quality of code he creates and assesses. He not only strives to achieve the highest standards for himself, but is also very patient and willing to guide others to attain them too. I have throughly enjoyed working with Adam and I foresee a very successful future for him in this industry.
Andrew Rushbury (E-commerce Manager at Abitech Systems)
Adam is great with attention to detail and fulfilling projects on time and to a great specification. All work was completed on time, with some great development ideas added to projects for both current and future development. Adam is constantly looking for new and developing technologies which he uses in his projects. I wouldn't hesitate in using Adam in any projects or jobs in the future.
