Jakub Konka

Hi! My name is Jakub, but you might know me by my Github handle kubkon. I'm a compiler engineer, and an open-source addict.

I am a paid Zig core team member, and I am currently focusing on first-class macOS support in Zig. I am the main author and contributor to the zld traditional and the self-hosted Mach-O linkers, and I have been working hard ensuring that Zig's stage1 compiler and libstd are usable on the latest macOS Big Sur running on Apple Silicon (ARM64).

Previously, I used to contribute a lot to the Wasm/WASI ecosystem but due to time constraints, I had to dial this down somewhat (if only days were longer...). However, that doesn't mean you will never see me contribute to this fanastic ecosystem ever again - stay tuned for more updates!

If you like my open-source contributions, you can now sponsor me on GitHub.

In this blog, I'll try to reflect on the more interesting aspects of my journey through the world of programming. If you would like to discuss any of the posts, feel free to drop me a line at moc.aknokbukaj@nokbuk or message me on Twitter at @kubkon.

My most notable contributions


Huge thanks to the Zig Software Foundation and my sponsors

I'd like to extend my thanks to the Zig Software Foundation for making me a full-time individual contractor. Thank you!
