This is our first meeting in Center City! We hope everyone who hasn't been able to make it to the Radnor meetings can come out and see the talk. It is hosted by our friends at Slalom Consulting (https://www.slalom.com/) and the talk location is fantastic. We're hoping this is the first of many meetings we'll be having in Center City (depending on our turnout).
Anyone who does not have their full name in Meetup will need to reach out and private message Anthony or Nick through meetup with their full name. We need to provide a name list to the security desk at Two Logan Square for access to the building. Please bring an ID with you as front desk will check it before providing you with a badge.
About the Talk:
Mob Programming is a relatively new practice that is increasing in popularity and gaining significant adoption in the software industry. Building off of the values and practices of Lean Manufacturing, Lean Software Development, and Extreme Programming, Mob Programming seeks to optimize the flow of work through the software development pipeline. With its focus on continuously delivering high quality software and value to customers, we believe it is an important practice for technology professionals to learn.
The talk describes Mob Programming, its history, its importance, and a set of recommendations to get started. By the end of the talk the attendees will be able to make use of the advice and begin experimenting with mobbing on their own.
