Web Application Developer
Rob has been connecting people to job-relevant training using a variety of web technologies and techniques with EMS for the past 24 years. He leverages server-side technologies to empower learners to acquire the skills to expand their careers. He also has a keen interest in cybersecurity - chasing bugs and vulnerabilities. Rob loves watching how users interact with my applications (for good or bad), finding things that were missed, and tightening code for efficiency and security. When problems do crop up, he thoroughly enjoys researching what happened and exploring options to fix what didn't go as expected.
