Age: 26
Located in: Aachen, Germany
Occupation: Student of Computer Science at RWTH Aachen
Software Developer at Klarälvdalens Datakonsult AB (KDAB)
Nickname on IRC: vkrause
Claim to Fame: Akonadi, KNode and various other stuff in KDE-PIM
Fav. KDE applications: Kontact, the KatePart, minicli

In what ways do you make a contribution to KDE?

In my spare time I'm currently working on Akonadi, the next-generation PIM data management framework. I also maintain KNode, KDE's news reader and try to keep an eye on KMime, KDE's MIME handling library.

At work I'm adding various features to Kontact, with KMail being the most prominent victim.

Full Story.
