Resume : Experience : Rob Lindman: Software Developer



Web Development

Web Developer with experience in HTML3,4,5, all modern browsers, testing and debugging web applications.


A large portion of my recent endeavors have involved development on PHP5 with MySQL databases, on Ubuntu or Debian servers.

This addendum is for employers interested in information about my recent experience with PHP and MySQL.


Over the past few years I have become adept at the C# language with .NET. I am regularly online in ##csharp in Freenode on IRC, either answering or asking questions on C#, .NET, and a variety of related topics, gathering information for a variety of different products related to the language as well as different methods for software design.

As time permits, I plan to extend this website with examples of programs I have developed recently. I previously had done so with Visual Basic 4 5 and 6 applications, but in transitioning to this new site, I decided to shelve those and produce newer software based on new things I've learned.

If you are interested in learning more about my C# background for employment purposes, feel free to contact me, or check back soon as I expand on this section.

Flash & ActionScript

My current position presents me with the unique opportunity for training in Adobe Flash CS3 as a designer, and ActionScript 3 as a software developer. I now have 3 months of experience with this technology, and I am planning to add more Flash and ActionScript related media to this site in the future.


Experienced in photo editing, graphic development with Adobe Photoshop versions 4 through CS4.


I have experience as an animator creating animated characters for user interfaces. See my portfolio for some of my animated characters.



forms validation UI animation and management css style modification ajax, soap, wsdl, rest, xml

I write Javascript frequently in my projects and for my customers. My preference is unobtrusive Javascript, I like the way it does not intermix scripting logic with layout or form data.

Most recently I developed a page for interfacing with my 3D virtual environment which uses AJAX, XSLT, and of course Javascript to regularly poll the status of servers and update a page for users.

Commonly I prefer to deploy Javascript in web applications in addition to server side validation for forms.

I am currently looking into the Yahoo UI (YUI) library for development of web applications.

URLs for examples of Javascript I have developed are available upon request, or can be identified by going to the sites in my Showcase section.








I have been developing databases for quite some time. My recent experiences in this area have been centered around the MySQL 5 database engine, though some projects have required both MS Access and MS SQL Server.

Ruby On Rails

Visual Basic & Classic ASP

I have over a decade of experience with Visual Basic. I worked with versions 5 and 6. I felt that Visual Basic was and is one of the better programming languages for development on the Windows platform. With Visual Basic I created hundreds of projects, both large and small, using Rapid Application Development. I also have several years of experience with Visual Basic Scripting, particularly in the Web Browser, and also under Internet Information Server. While I have since moved all of my sites to PHP, and all of my development efforts to C#.NET, I still work with some customers on ASP, Visual Basic, and these older yet simpler technologies from time to time.

Microprocessor Resale

One interesting opportunity arose in the 1990s... I was employed at Inland Empire Components in Lake Elsinore, California, where I worked to develop systems for management of inventory in an ISO 9000 environment. I oversaw all computer related issues of the process, worked with vendors on systems for shipping and receiving, and learned a great deal about microprocessors and their unique properties. At this company I developed my first web based search engine, and accompanying data import and export process.

Clean Room

I was employed at Micron Semiconductor for a summer, where I worked in clean room environments and interacted with the various chemistry, software, and processes used when developing Memory Modules. I received training on various Unix systems during this time, and interacted frequently with industrial machinery.

Radio & Television

I have worked as a DJ in both AM and FM radio, as a technical producer, call screener. I managed several radio automation systems, kept station logs, and also did some production work producing spots. At the CBS affiliate in Boise, Idaho, I ran the master control room during live television broadcasts. At the "new" UPN affiliate, I was responsible for dubbing comercials, ensuring the on air presence of station identifiers, and oversaw the operational state of numerous downlinks from satellite networks. From time to time, I worked closely with marketing, sales, management, and image consultants to produce media and entertainment.
