(mc) munich consulting is the brainchild of Sylvain Gibier and was created with the goal of strictly creating architectures and applications that push the envelope of what is possible. We are a freelance solution/technical architect and Agile aficionado - 98% chimpanzee, 2% French - living in Munich, Germany. We started freelancing early in 2004 and have worked in a wide range of personal clients and agencies around the world.
Software development is no mindless assembly-line work, but requires creativity, precision and also a certain kind of ethos. That's why we stick to the rules of the Manifesto for Software Craftsmanship. It's important for us that we deliver very good results, but not only because that's what the customer demands, but because we also want to see ourselves as specialists whose work stands up to the test of other specialists.
