Karolis Narkevicius

Welcome to my very own corner of the web. I'm a Software Engineer and a Co-Founder at Zero where we are currently building Humaans the simplest employee directory and time off booking system you'll ever use. I use JavaScript because of it's versatility and ongoing evolution. I am striving to create high quality products that help people do more. I am interested in the re-decentralisation of the web and more generally in ensuring technology creates a sustainable future.

Interests

These are the projects that are actively being developed out there and that I find the most interesting at the moment. Right now I am just an observer, but am always on the lookout for an opportunity and time to contribute one way or another.

  • Bitcoin Lightning

    Lightning is a protocol and a network for scalable and instant Bitcoin transactions. It makes so much sense and is one of the next missing pieces in the Bitcoin saga. The technology hasn’t reached the tipping point yet, but I’m patiently observing it from the sidelines. To me Lightning Labs is one of most interesting companies out there right now.

  • P2P Scuttlebutt

    Scuttlebutt is a peer to peer social network. I find it to be the most fascinating piece of software of it’s kind, because of how it currently operates with 10s of thousands of users without involving any servers! All of the data and communication is happening completely client to client, laptop to laptop, phone to phone. Manyverse is the latest and potentially one of the most important projects in this space as it’s bringing the social network to mobile devices.

  • Languages Reason

    Reason is an OCaml based functional programming language with syntax inspired by JavaScript. I have felt incredibly productive with JavaScript in the last few years using it for everything from web and mobile applications, to APIs, scripts, command line tools and more. But Reason is the one language that has my attention piqued. I see it as a stricter, more efficient and more convenient version of JavaScript. And it has the potential to displace it in all of the same areas JavaScript is being used today.
