Lee Marshall will feature at March's #MidsTest with his talk
Mobbing (Not just for programming)
What the talk is about:
Mob Programming is a great way for teams to work together, share knowledge, upskill, and increase awareness of workload within the team. But the "Programming" part of the title can be off-putting to those who are not technically inclined or interested.
Lee will give an overview of what Mob Programming is, why he refers to it as Mobbing instead, and how he has helped different teams learn how to work as a mob on more than just programming. He will also cover the obstacles with getting a team and organisation to embrace this, and what can be done to mitigate this.
After the talk there is the opportunity for all attendees to take part in 99 Second Talks, where they can use the time to trial a presentation they plan to give, ask for help to the community, share something they are passionate about, virtually anything they can think of.
In January we had 1 speaker, in February we had 3, how many will March give us..?
Lee is a test engineer at Coventry Building Society, having worked there for 8 years.
He has previously spoken twice at MidsTest, on "The testing social network" and "Testing Community of Practice", is now the lead co-ordinator at MidsTest, and considers himself a Test Evangelist, wanting to encourage others to think about testing more, and non-testers to look into trying testing.
