I’ve worked with Pandiyan for almost 5 years and known his entire career. He is a very passionate developer and I’ve seen him quickly take on new responsibilities while having the time to teach other developers also. Pandiyan have been very critical resource for the team. Infact having him team has helped a lot in reducing some of my burden in managing the team. Apart from his core role I have seen him participate in lot of community activities and doing public presentation regularly has definitely improved his technical abilities and helped him to have an edge. I have only optimistic predictions for his career trajectory.
