I've been managing a web and mobile development team for 4 years and I have 10 years of teaching experience at the university level. I also give talks at conferences on leadership and motivation.
My introduction to the world of Routing and Switching was through John's Cisco Networking Academy class. His organization of the material, immaculate teaching method and in-depth knowledge of the field provided me with concrete foundation to begin my career.
John is an example of professionalism at the highest level. Mr. Rouda makes everyone around him pale in comparison, but he always remains down to earth. I have known John for about 14 years and from the first time I met him, he has impressed me with his knowledge and insight on just about every topic. Knowing him on a personal level has only reassured me that he is a once in a lifetime individual. Top shelf all the way!
John has a very strong talent for teaching and leadership. His expertise of work flow, development, project management, and economics added not only qualitatively but quantitatively to many educational endeavors. He brings the various topics together to effectively illustrate how entire processes flow for an all-around cost / benefit analysis for both business ROI as well as personal growth. His real world experience adds a much needed factor to the educational environment and his methods also help to enforce and conceptualize critical thinking as it applies to Digital Information Design as well as other facets of life. John’s knowledge and ability is definitely an asset.
I had the pleasure of working along side John for 5 years at Comporium Communications. John exhibits a high level of technical acumen in Application Development and IT Infrastructure. I collaborated with him on successful projects involving large email migrations, portal implementations, and web server rollouts. John would be a great resource for any organization.
John is a talented IT professional with a vast array of experience. He is eager to tackle new problems and projects. He is a great communicator and mentor to his peers and a valuable asset both as an engineer and manager.
John Rouda was a pleasure to work with. He is a team player who has the rare mix of managerial and technical skills. John was also helpful to me for my own developmental as he always took the time to train his co-workers on skill-sets to make the whole team stronger. John will make a invaluable member on any team is assigned too. I would consider myself lucky to work with him again.
John is one of the most competent and talented IT professionals that I have worked with in my career. He has delivered several valued solutions that have enhanced the day to day operations of our business. In the projects we have worked together, John is always on-time with meeting deadlines, delivers IT solutions to spec, and often will go above and beyond the customer requirements for IT development. In my opinion, he is one of the most valuable assets/managers in our Information Technology department. I highly recommend him.
I enjoyed working with John, as a coworker and direct report. He is intelligently minded, forward thinking, and easy to get along with. He was always able to lend a hand in a difficult situation and manages his projects well.
