Get your team in flow!

Mob or ensemble programming is a technique pioneered by Woody Zuill. What if it were possible to remove most of the interruptions you typically encounter? Questions for the PO, code reviews, approvals, UX, etc. This is what mob programming makes possible by bringing in all the people needed to accomplish the task. A highly recommended workshop hosted by Woody Zuill himself.

What you'll learn

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.

In this two-day workshop you and your team will get up to speed with mob programming and how it can boost your productivity.
