After six months of work with Gaurav I can say he is exactly the mentor I need to become a professional Data Engineer. He is: - currently a professional Data Engineer with AWS, - knowledgeable and understanding of what’s needed to become a professional DE, - able to judge the level of a mentee and develop a unique learning plan to fit, - patient in guiding and supporting me as I work on my learning plan, and - has a calm, encouraging way of teaching. I recommend Gaurav as a Data Engineering mentor without reservation.

Gaurav is one of the best teachers I’ve found in a long career in the academic environment (on both sides of the ‘podium’)! Just the right balance between: - directing the learning process while listening/responding to student questions, - theory/deep concept study and hands-on work, - historical prospectives and current technology. Looking forward to our continued work together!
