Mob Programming Workshop with Woody Zuill

All the brilliant people working on the same thing, at the same time, in the same place, and on the same computer.

Read about what it's done for one Göteborg Team!

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 typical day of Mob Programming while learning the mechanics of how to work together as a Mob and the techniques that make this form of development so effective.

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 mobbing and it's significant benefits for your teams.
