I've worked with Shivam across numerous projects throughout the course of these past three years. In this time, I've arrived at the conclusion that few people are as determined to find the solution to a problem as Shivam is. His ability to look at a problem rationally and systematically take it apart is unlike anything I've ever seen. Being proficient in both Python 3 and Java, Shivam is an excellent programmer and would make a valuable addition to any team.
