Testimonials

I've worked with David on Kazam Screencaster over the last 6 months or so. It's been a delight to have someone who is attentive, friendly and knowledgeable working on software for Ubuntu. I'd heartily recommend David for Ubuntu Membership -- AlanPope

David has been a long time contributor to Gwibber and his work on Kazam has been great. I've enjoyed working with him in the past and would love to see him become an Ubuntu Member. -- KenVanDine

I've been working with David on Kazam for almost an year now and I must say it's been quite the delightful experience. It is a pleasure to work with someone who is as knowledgeable and as as hard working as he is. One of his most valuable qualities is that he is not afraid of tough challenges, and take my word for that - any tricky task on his To Do list gets passed with flying colours. Last, but not least, he is really fun guy to be around and has brill sense of humour. In all honestly it's quite rad to work with him and it will be ace to see him becoming an Ubuntu member. -- me4oslav (Launchpad)
