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.
Our 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.
