About John F. Nixon

Hi, I’m John F. Nixon. Originally I was a physics major who found working with computers strangely compelling. I’ve studied several different areas of Computer Science, from operating systems to networking. Out in the work world, I’ve been a developer, manager, VP of Engineering, professor, and a consultant. I’ve used my intellect and technical chops to make great products for everything from embedded handheld systems to national ISP datacenters. As a manager and professor, I’ve used my communication skills to explain complex ideas to non-specialists in an understandable and convincing manner.
