Mob Programming: All the brilliant people working on the same thing, at the same time, in the same place, and on the same computer. Mob Programming is a cost-effective, collaborative and fun way to get work done together. It's a whole-team approach to development, where coding, designing, testing, and working with the "customer" (partner, Product Owner, User, etc.) is all done as a team. Participants in this workshop experience a day of learning and doing Mob Programming. We cover the mechanics of how to work together as a Mob as well as the techniques that make this form of development so effective. We’ll learn how a Mob performs sample project work, including user stories, prioritization, test-driven development, refactoring, and retrospectives. Designed and facilitated by Mob Programming pioneer Woody Zuill, this workshop provides a hands-on education in the art of Mob Programming and it's significant benefits for your teams.
