Michal Papis owner of NICZ SOFT, born 1980.07.19 in Szczecin, Poland. Mostly involved in open source software development. His adventure with computers started in 1993 with Atari at home and some older PC’s at school. Even graphical environments ware taking bigger and bigger share in user interfaces he was fascinated in shell, first DOS with Norton Commander and other tools, next with Linux.
After many years of work with MS Windows and gaining quite deep knowledge of it he decided to drop it in 2004 in favor of Linux first Mandrake and later on openSUSE. In this time he had already experience in areas of software development like Delphi, Java, C/C++. In 2008 Michal started his adventure with Ruby and Rails. His choice of Linux was motivated by it’s shell and possibilities of configuration/modification of the OS.
Currently Michal is not involved in cooperation with any company, he uses all his time to develop open source software and to play with his children (Son Dominik and Twin daughters Agata and Ada).
