Val Lorentz


I am a backend software engineer working at Software Heritage, a non-profit building the universal source code archive.

In my free time, I work on Free Software and open protocols, especially the IRC protocol and its implementations.
In particular, I am the lead developer of Limnoria, a full-featured IRC bot based on Supybot.
I am the editor of the Modern IRC Specification, I occasionally write specifications for IRCv3, and I maintain the irctest test suite.

I also host an open Mastodon instance:
