Ryan Ripley (@ryanripley), Amitai Schlair (@schmonz) and Woody Zuill (@WoodyZuill) got together to discuss Mob Programming (#MobProgramming). Mob programming involves the whole team working on the same thing, at the same time, in the same space, and at the same computer. You can think of it as pair programming turned up to eleven.
We talked about the benefits that mob programming can bring to a team, how it can simplify the hiring and on-boarding process, and what to do when the mob needs some alone time.
We also learned about the Mob Programming Conference coming to Cambridge, Mass on May 1st and 2nd. Hosted by Agile New England and organized by Nancy Van Schooenderwoert, Llewellyn Falco, Woody Zuill, Kurt Kilpela, and Peter Carmichael this is shaping up to be the event to attend if you are interested in learning about and seeing Mob Programming in action.
And then…we called it a night.
