John Chapman is a Technical Director at Eaton working to advance the way in which embedded software is developed. His entire professional career has been devoted to writing software for devices that most people don’t even think about as having software (like microwave ovens or thermostats). He is oddly satisfied that code he has written has helped improve the lives of tens of millions of people. John was introduced to a life of service by his parents while helping at a soup kitchen in 8th grade and has continued through united way and Big Brothers Big Sisters through his adult life. In an effort to carry on the tradition of service to his kids, he and his son volunteer at monthly climbing events with Catalyst Sports in Louisville, KY. John is excited to further expand his volunteerism by helping to guide Catalyst!
