Konrad is an Akka hakker at Typesafe, where he also participated in the Reactive Streams initiative, and implemented its Technology Compatibility Kit.

Konrad is a late-night passionate dev living by the motto "Life is Study!". His favourite discussion topics range from distributed systems to capybaras. He has founded and run multiple user groups (Java, Scala, Computer Science, ...), and works on program committees of awesome conferences such as GeeCON and JavaOne SF.

Other than that, he's a frequent speaker on distributed systems and concurrency topics at conferences all around the world. In those rare times he's not coding, he spreads the joy of computer science, through helping local user groups and whitepaper reading clubs.

You can follow Konrad on Twitter or check out his website here. You can also view some of his talks here and here, with his most recent talk being "The need for async".
