Konrad Malawski



Konrad is a passionate late-night hakker, living by the motto “Life is Study!”, working on the Akka toolkit @ Typesafe.

He also participated in the Reactive Streams initiative and has implemented its Technology Compatibility Kit. He has founded and leads multiple user groups (ranging from the PolishJUG, though functional programming and computer science reading clubs), and most notably co-leading the annual GeeCON conference and being a member of the JavaOne SF Program Committee.

His favourite discussion topics range from distributed systems to japanese culture (and capybaras). In those rare times he’s not coding he spreads the joy of computer science by speaking at international conferences or helping various user groups and white-paper reading clubs.
