    "Eddie has been a valuable member to our team. He is very dedicated and always tries to perform to the best of his abilities. He volunteers his time outside work hours to understand and further contribute to the team. He is very social, always positive and has helped improve our work place environment by becoming a member of our social committee. Any project task we gave him was executed autonomously in a timely manner. If he encountered any difficulty, he would seek out assistance from his colleagues and made sure he thoroughly understood the problem before moving on to his next task. Eddie has exceeded all our expectations and we would gladly welcome him back into our team."

    "Eddie is an extremely intelligent and adaptive developer. His unwavering tenacity and drive for solving technical challenges distinguishes him as a rare talent among software engineers. During his time at Veeva, Eddie served as point man for the development and maintenance of our in-house metrics aggregation and reporting utility. I provided Eddie with consultation on various front-end programming problems to which his reception was always positive and open. His utilization of digital and human resources is exceptional and always served as an effective asset when faced with daunting engineering problems. I believe that Eddie will continue to grow substantially throughout his university career and will undoubtedly be a great fit for any team."

    "First and foremost, Eddie has an incredible work ethic and integrity. Whenever I assign a challenge to Eddie, I have no doubt that he would accurately and methodically attack the problem in a timely manner. As his mentor, I trust him fully in his judgment and output. He simply need to understand the goal and immediately goes off to achieve it. During Eddie's short term here, he was able to participate in multiple projects and drive all of them to completion. Finally, and most importantly of which makes Eddie unique, is his ability to bring a fun and energetic atmosphere to the office. Everyone loved working with him and I feel like we were very lucky to have had Eddie as part of the team. I would highly recommend him for any position he decides to pursue in the future."

    - Shawn Luo - Engineering Mentor - Veeva Systems, August 2014
