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.
Shivam is an excellent programmer and his dedication to gain knowledge on numerous topics shows that he is very passionate about computer science. His logical skills are without any doubt one of his best skills. Any company hiring him would consider him as a valuable asset.
Shivam is a gifted programmer with a rare combination of patience, valor and research skills. His expertise in collaborating with and guiding fellow companions are truly exceptional. Moreover, his skills to program in JAVA stands out among others and his ability to research and hence find apt solutions to the problems truly is a bonus to any enterprise he finds himself in the future.
