King 'Protty'
Senior Software Engineer


Hi, my name is King, also known as kprotty online (short for “protocol”). My favorite part about software is extensively “optimizing” it under various definitions.

A few years ago, I was working on providing Zig with good threading and async libraries. Things happened and I ended up joining the Zig core team to help out in these areas for the standard library. Now, I work full-time on TigerBeetle improving its storage engine written in Zig.
