It is always a pleasure to work with Andrew Zahra.

I first met Andrew Zahra while working at Itree in Wollongong in 2007. Over the years, Andrew has proven himself to be a veteran software engineer and a very generous mentor.

I now work at IP-Surveillance.com.au Pty Ltd in the capacity of Development Manager. Andrew Zahra has again become a valuable source of experience and energy in the development of a customer-facing utility program which supplements our main product.

Andrew exhibited a high level of professionalism throughout all stages of this project. The end result of his work is a feature-rich application that we are proud to present to our customers.

Should more contracting work become available, Andrew will be our first point of contact.

I have worked with Andrew in various roles at different organisations over many years. He is a highly skilled developer who has a broad experience across many different platforms and technologies.

Andrew brings all of this experience into the mobile application domain where he has become expert in iOS and Android development for business applications. He is familiar with the latest development environments and is constantly looking at ways to improve the development process and the technologies he is using. He has a strong focus on good software design in order to maximise code quality and maintainability.

Andrew’s extensive background in back-end development means that he has a good understanding of the mobile interfaces and different back-end technologies which makes him valuable in the mobile domain.

Andrew is a very knowledgeable and skilled developer, who is quick to learn and integrates well with existing teams. Andrew worked on a number of iOS and Android Apps and hit the ground running on each project. He championed testing frameworks into existing projects and helped mentor junior Engineers. Andrew has very strong communication skills and is equally skilled at leading both technical discussions and client facing meetings. Andrew is easy going, a good listener and understands the needs of the business.  Andrew is someone I recommend and will call again for future projects.

I got to know Andrew at Itree Software in March 2007. Andrew worked in my team as a Senior Developer from July 2008 till May 2009.

Andrew’s interest in new technologies and tools and his openness to share his findings with other team members made him a valuable person in my team. He took the whole automated build process to the next level within our project. So successful that it became a standard for other projects within the company.

Besides his normal job Andrew was, and still is, leading the Illawarra Java user group. He does this with great enthusiasm. Besides local speakers he is also able to get prominent speakers from Google for example.

Given Andrew’s technical expertise and communicative skills, I can say without a doubt that Andrew is an excellent Solutions Architect. I enjoyed working with Andrew and would not hesitate for a moment to work with him again.
