I do Open Source. You should too!

Hi! My name is Paweł, self-taught developer and entrepreneur, who has built an entire career and business through Open Source technology. I have learned a lot in the process and I believe there is not enough knowledge-sharing in that space. By blogging and speaking at conferences, I want to help other young entrepreneurs and companies who may want to follow a similar path.

I am 24 and I was born in Łódź, a great city located in the exact centre of Poland. While still in high school, I have worked for my first commercial clients and created initial bits of code, which ultimately became an Open Source project. A few years into the future, Sylius is the first eCommerce framework for PHP, with over 350 code contributors and used by developers worldwide.

These days I am busy leading the project towards its stable release and managing a commercial company Lakion that emerged in 2014, from Sylius’ popularity. Our team is currently 12 passionate people that support the community and provide development services for companies, whose innovative business models do not fit standard solutions. We also consult and train other development agencies, who use Sylius for their customers.

I had the great opportunity to speak and share my knowledge at over 30 events, including international technology conferences all across Europe. I am also involved with my local community, as a co-organizer of PHPers meetups in my hometown.

I hope you will join me in this exciting adventure and maybe create or improve your own business with the ideas you learned here. Do not hesitate to get in touch via e-mail and you can also follow me on social media profiles to see the "behind the scenes" of building products with Open Source. Feel welcomed in our community!
