Hello! I'm Gabe Landau, a Web & Mobile Development major pursing a bachelors degree at the Rochester Institute of Technology as part of the IT department. I enjoy developing applications for web environments, and I love discovering new frameworks and technologies that are becoming prevalent in the technology and computer science industry.

Work Experience

MindStream Analytics | Web Application Developer
Boston, MA | May 2016 - Current

Working with a development team on creating different web-based applications. Current projects include:

  • Cloud Connector: A program built to serve data between two Oracle cloud-based applications. Developed in the MEAN stack using an Express REST API, an Angular front-end, and MongoDB to store short-term user data.
  • ER Form: A program built for the Telluride medical center to serve as an intake form for emergency room patients. Built using PHP to connect to a Python backend and JavaScript (with jQuery) for front-end animations.

Relevant Skills: Web development, JavaScript, MEAN Stack development, Node.js

Rochester Institute of Technology | ITS Technician
Rochester, NY | October 2015 - Current

Working on a team that provides tier 2, enterprise level computer/network support to RIT students and staff. Responsibilities include:

  • Software/Drivers: Software/driver installations, troubleshooting, virus removal, etc.
  • Hardware: Hardware installation, troubleshooting, RMAs, replacements, etc.
  • Network: Domain management, SCCM, Active Directory, network-wide anti-virus, etc.

Relevant Skills: Hardware and software knowledge, network knowledge, basic development skills

Projects

Conspiracy Ipsum | Lead Developer
Current Project

"Conspiracy Ipsum" is a spin-off of the typical "Lorem Ipsum" generator that is used for generating placeholder text in web-development and other related fields. Instead of generating the typical Latin text, this project will generate text taken from popular conspiracy theories and present it in a readable format.

The program is being developed in JavaScript, using Angular to build a front-end interface with easy data-binding. Future updates include connecting a NoSQL database (MongoDB), an Express API, etc.

NXP Freescale Cup Race | Programmer and Car Builder
Imagine RIT Project - May 2016

Using a barebones kit, teams build cars with line-scan cameras and program the car in whatever manner they choose to drive along a path, following a line painted on the ground. Cars are judged based on speed, and are disqualified if they de-rail.

Our car was programmed in MatLab, using an PID controller as the primary means of controlling the car. Different MatLab features assisted with connecting to the motor, wheels, etc.

Education
