Zoltan Kochan

Lead Engineer, Open Source Contributor


I am Zoltan Kochan, lead software engineer by day, open source contributor day and night.

I would say my most significant contribution to the digital world is pnpm, a fast, disk space efficient package manager for JavaScript. Started as a solo project back in 2016, it is now a collaborative effort with some significant results: close to 5 million weekly downloads, used by companies like Microsoft or ByteDance. As the founder, I have remained dedicated to its ongoing development and have been honoured to witness its impact on the JavaScript community.

Living in Ukraine and experiencing the results of the war first hand, I'd like to take the opportunity to ask you to support Ukraine.
