To whom it may concern,
I am writing this letter on behalf of Ed Chipman, an Interactive & Motion Graphics : Flash
Developer Stream student at the Nova Scotia Community College. For the past two
years I have been Ed’s instructor for a wide range of courses on Flash and Flex
development. Ed came to the college with a significant amount of skills and knowledge
under his belt, particularly in PHP development. He leveraged this existing knowledge to
help him explore new technologies, as well as compliment the Flash and Flex
technologies he spent much of his time learning. The Flash developer stream requires a
high level of dedication and passion for the subject matter in order to succeed and Ed
rose to the challenge with flying colours.
I have been and continue to be very impressed with Ed's ability to meet rigorous project
deadlines and requirements while maintaining a high level of quality in his work. His work
ethic is based in maturity and a solid level of professionalism, despite having several other
projects. Ed has demonstrated a real zest for working through complex problems to
obtain a concrete viable solution; all the while willing to tackle any new technologies
that are thrown his way. To say that Ed is an excellent self-motivator and coordinator of
his own learning would be an understatement. This skill is a crucial element of any great
developer in this ever changing IT industry.
I can truly recommend Ed as both a professional developer and a valuable asset to any
project team, and can assure you that he will continue to strive for excellence
throughout his career.
