Welcome to my home online, in which I share a little of my interests, experience, faith and philosophy. Much of the content centers on technology, and my
efforts in software and hardware engineering, design, architecture, etc. As an outdoors enthusiast, I also try to share some of my family’s hiking, backpacking, camping and canoeing exploits, as well.

This current iteration of jonsharp.net brings with it a host of legacy content.
The older blog entries and project pages sometimes reflect interests and projects long since abandoned, but some of this content was once popular and useful, and I hope that it may be still. I intend to provide more-frequent updates to the blog and project content moving forward, as well as filling in the large gap left by my entrepreneurial ventures of the past several years.

The technology content itself will feature topics such as digital design, embedded systems development, microcontrollers, wearable computing, robotics, programmable logic (FPGAs), Java, Linux, open source, technology leadership, enterprise architecture and retrocomputing, to name a few.

Outside of technology, I may occasionally share a bit about some of the communities of which I am a member, including Nashville’s Down syndrome community, represented by the Down Syndrome Association of Middle Tennessee and that of my local church, Madison Campus Seventh-day Adventist Church.

If I’ve handed you one of my cards and you’ve come here to learn more of what I’m about, thank you. Drop me a line using the contact info here and keep in touch.


Then Jesus spoke to them again: “I am the light of the world. Anyone who follows Me will never walk in the darkness but will have the light of life.” - John 8:12, HCSB
