Software — Products — TeamsMarco Rico Gómez

Software Consultant with 20+ years of experience in various product, development & management roles.


I believe that software development is about helping people and businesses to solve problems, become more efficient and automate repeating tasks. It's always about the value the software system delivers. Depending on the context and environment there are different approaches to develop software in the most pragmatic and efficient way, without compromising the internal software quality.

If I had to name a single book that characterized me as a software developer, it would be “The Pragmatic Programmer” by Dave Thomas and Thomas Hunt. An over 20 years old classic full of insights about finding the right solution depending on the environment.

Over-engineered solutions and adding complexity by adopting the latest "hottest" technology without a clear reason is a no-go for me. I believe in simplicity. A former colleague of mine told me: "You're writing baby code". A great compliment since simple code is easy to understand and follow.
