Dear Sir or Madam:

I have known David in my capacity as an Adjunct Associate Professor at the University of

Maryland, University College. David was in my CMSC412 ‘Operating Systems’ course during the summer

of 2018; he received an ‘A’ for course based on his excellent performance.

David has a number of strengths to offer a graduate program. First, he coded all his

assignments on time and provided detailed analysis, test cases, and excellent documentation for each

program assignment. This was considered excellent during evaluations. Second, David contributed to

and participated in class discussion and questions by both students and myself—the instructor. Third,

David effectively learned about Operating System coding in both Java and C++. Fourth, David was

always interested in supporting others. I recall during many instances in class where David was very

kind, knowledgeable, and extremely helpful with the other students.

In conclusion, I would highly recommend David Odhiambo based on his high performance in my

‘Operating System’ class at the University of Maryland, University College. If David’s hard work in my

class is any indication of how he would perform in graduate school, David Odhiambo will be an

extremely positive addition to your incoming team of graduate students. If you should need any

additional insights or information please contact me by phone at #removed for privacy  or by email at email removed for privacy
