Conor is extremely hard working, very organised and also objective minded such that when new tasks come in he always makes me aware and a priority decision to be made - which is how the process should work! He always priorities well within his own task set as well recognising what his best for the company away from any objective/political sways which is also refreshing. His general mannerism is very good, constructive and positive displaying high energy and a 'lets do it' attitude.
He is renowned as a technical expert in what he does in the [business area] resulting in people 'always wanting his time'. As well as helping others on other company critical issues, [name of software I developed] has and will continue to be an excellent tool for turbines to use. The level of coding, complexity, rate at which he delivered it, [software process compliance] done, and the impact of it in terms of integrating and making [company strategic objective] feasible as well as significant time saving in terms of man hours the tools will deliver.

Weeks of coding can save you hours of planning.
If it doesn't work, it doesn't matter how fast it doesn't work.
Testing can only show the presence, not the absence, of bugs.
A user-interface should be so simple that a beginner in an emergency can understand it within 10 seconds.
Debugging is like being the detective in a crime movie where you are also the murderer.
I am looking for a career change to really work on my software development and data-analysis skills. Select which skills and stacks below are important to your work and let's see if I'm a good fit...
Please note - I do believe myself to have other skills not listed here (e.g. specific Python packages and ML techniques), but this list is already 16 items long, so I had to cut a balance between detail and usability for this widget.
