Amazing! Rob quickly understood my project and he gave me the right direction about my specific problems. He explained me in details what to do first and how to go about data acquisition from a physical device to a cloud databse. Something I would not have figured out by myself so quickly.
Super nice guy and great call! Thank you.

Great chat about sensor networks and internet of things applications. Rob has a lot of experience and insight into the industry and where it's going.
Rob is a gifted programmer and talented thinker. He has developed solutions on a variety of programming platforms. Rob is able to see the big picture yet he displays great attention to detail. In addition, Rob possesses an entrepreneurial side which allows him to see business opportunities and understand challenges. I have no hesitation in recommending Rob for any technical position.
Rob's native intelligence for IT, and extensive software design and development is great. He is a highly qualified Software Consultant with experience in backend (Client/Server, Database Design, Hardware integration) and front end design and implementation. (Web 2.0, Django, CSS, etc). Success in developing web based control and monitoring systems is directly attributed to his keen knowledge and experience.
