Mob Programming is a development practice where the whole team works on the same thing, at the same time, in the same space, and at the same computer. This is a “Whole Team” approach to doing all the work the team does – including coding, designing, testing, and working with the “customer” (partner, Product Owner, user, etc). We'll take a look at the practice and explore the benefits and some ideas you can try on your own team.
To be discussed:
How can 5+ people be effective working on 1 thing?
Guidelines for successful collaboration
Mechanics of Mobbing
Tools for mobbing
The theory of why mobbing is effective.
Test Driven Development (TDD)
Working with Product Owners
Woody Zuill is part of the team where Mob Programming originated. The timelapse video ( http://bit.ly/MobProgrammingVideo ) of him and his team started the entire “craze”.
