I’M JOHN SLOAN
An embedded software developer
let’s BUILD a product together
I help my clients conceptualize, architect, design, develop, ship, and support successful products, ranging in size from the very small to the very large, on the internet of interesting things: embedded, real-time, distributed, low level, high performance, concurrent, parallel, asynchronous, devices, micro-controllers, software, firmware, close to bare metal.
I’M ALL ABOUT THE BIG PICTURE AND THE SMALL DETAILS
The Digital Aggregates Corporation® is the company I founded in 1995 for consulting, contracting, and leveraging my own open source work.
Since 2006, I have been writing a blog on the business and technology of product development under the pseudonym Chip Overclock® on Blogger.
Videos of several talks I have given to clients, on topics ranging from hardware entropy generation to atomic clocks, are available on YouTube.
I frequently purchase products for my work on Amazon.com and when I really like them – or really don’t like them – I write reviews of them under the pseudonym Chip Overclock®.
Images, including photographs, screen shots, and graphs, that appear on my blog and in my talks are available on Flickr.
I have worked in the academic, big science, telecommunications, industrial automation, defense, intelligence, and aviation domains, and on platforms ranging from tiny micro-controllers to vast distributed telecommunications systems to supercomputers.
It is my privilege to have served on academic and industrial advisory panels, and to have endowed a modest scholarship and regularly contribute to a specific program fund at my alma mater.
