10 years in game-design/development/publishing, 5 years in iPhone design/development. Built initial tech + tech-teams for multiple startups.
Adam is a very diligent and creative colleague that I enjoyed working with.
Adam is a very smart person with passion and confidence.
I believe that his wide knowledge and confidence is definetely more valuable in a leading position than a following one.
He has a very positiv character and I'd enjoyed very much working with him.
My recommendation is simple - I would happily work for or with Adam again.
Adam is one of a kind. Vibrant, intelligent and creative he brings a hell of a lot to whatever he's doing. His wide knowledge of online gaming and networking tech puts him in a great position to provide solutions to the difficult problems developers face; his personality allows him to get these solutions across to the individuals and teams he works with.
Adam has an impressive grasp of new trends in technology, particularly online technology. He keeps up with the industry and is very knowledgeable about what is going on. But he also has a good imagination for thinking of practical ways to use the new technology in the projects he works on. He is great at coming up with new ideas, and I think he would be good to have at any company looking to innovate.
Adam is a very knowledgeable engineer - he has a very wide range of skills as both in management, organisational or development issues. Very smart and very open. He was always there when I was in the need of a second opinion or a good idea. Communicates really well. I would really love to work with him again in the future.
It has been a pleasure working with Adam, his mind is a fountain of knowledge. The multiple facets of his skilfulness have made him an expert in many areas and this shines through even when you only talk to him casually. He is also a good public personality and has sat in several panels at various conventions, where he has proven adept at captivating the attention of his audience.
There are many people who have pontificated about the convergence between online gaming and web technologies; few have moved on to actually implement this. Adam is one of those few. He has had no problem challenging pre-concieved assumptions about what is possible in that space, and I look forward to his next project.
Adam is a highly knowledgable, hard-working person who is incredibly passionate about all things games and education.
Adam is extremely clever and he has an impressive kowledge about web 2.0, online games, MMOs, virtual worlds and social networking. He understands both the technology and the business aspects of things, which is a very precious skill that enables him to handle versatile projects with lots of different groups . He also always strive for challenging things and improving them, which is a great quality. I really enjoyed working with him!
There are a lot of people in the entertainment industry talking about the Next Big Thing, Web 2.0, etc. Few are visionary enough, though, to make it actually happen, and define it.
Adam Martin is one of those people; he has a drive, and a sense of vision, and a creativity and originality in his thinking that is inspiring to engage with.
I learned much from Adam in our too-brief time working together; I am certain we will run into each other again, in our business.
