Welcome.. Rob is a disabled (not working full time since 2001) software hobbyist developer who sells at least one app on a few mobile app stores.

Software Development as a Hobby and Business

Student Centered Class Asst. (<- click to visit)

Mobile/Tablet App (2017-present) designed for teachers to use in classrooms. A teacher in my family requested this app. That teacher is my one Android user (the one I’m concerned about), but on IOS (Apple), I have at least 125 customers (as of Mid-May 2024). If interested, I am seriously considering writing a Windows version of this App as well since I may be getting a Windows tablet, though I have my doubts about demand on that platform (maybe i’m wrong).

FMail for Windows Store

From 2012 to 2014, this was a POP3 e-mail client for Windows (from when it lacked pop3 support). This one earned me a few thousand $ on the side.

Contract: Contact Management for Windows

I worked with Anritsu (2006-2008) to develop a contact management App for Windows (with a PHP/MySQL Back-end to store contacts remotely). This tracked field service technicians for all the major cell phone carriers, displayed in a heirarchy (tree) format (with drag a drop repositioning).

Contract: Tribunal/Dispensation Management System

1998-2003 Contracted with NAV Co., LLC to codevelop case management software sold to Catholic Diocese Offices. I visited the NYC, Syracuse, and Atlanta Diocese offices to help get the software up and running. This software did things like track annulment cases using Canon Law rules and generated reports to be sent to the Vatican (“Rome Report”).

I earned the CompTIA A+ Certification back around 2001, but it seems to still be valid as of May 2024. The logo is pretty, so I’m adding it here. Many of my other certifications from back then have been retired (Certified Novell Engineer 5, Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer [NT4], and Linux Professional Institute Certified Level 1 [expired 2008]). For fun, I might take some new certification exams as time allows.
