Name:Kevin Jahns

I’m working on foundational technology that enables people to build collaborative, local-first applications. My main project is Yjs - a general-purpose CRDT that specializes in rich-text editing.

I’m part of a collective that is building an ecosystem of software around Yjs. One objective of our collective is to bring Yjs-compatible CRDT implementations to more programming languages.
