About me

Hi! I'm a software engineer from Brno, Czech republic. I started working contributing to KDE around 2010 and I've been active there since. I switched to Fedora when I joined Red Hat and started helping with maintaining KDE-related packages in Fedora. I have switched jobs since then and don't have that much time for KDE or Fedora, but I'm still around occasionally helping with things here and there.


I'm co-maintaining KDE Frameworks 5 and Plasma 5 packages in Fedora. I'm also a member of KDE SIG.


I'm upstream maintainer of Akonadi, the PIM storage framework, and I actively work on the KDE PIM suite. I also wrote and maintain the Akonadi resources for Google services in KDE PIM. With Álex Fiestas we built KScreen, the new screen management software for KDE (that we also ship in Fedora since F20!). I occasionally send patches to KDE Telepathy, it was the first KDE project I started constributing to.
