Let’s Work Well Together

 

Mob Programming is amazingly simple: It starts with “Let’s learn to work well together,” and follows a few guidelines: 

  • The people doing the work can best figure out how to do the work. 
  • We express our intention, take action, learn about the work by doing it. 
  • We work together, study together, reflect together, and turn up the good.  
  • And “for an idea to go from someone’s head into the computer it must go through someone else’s hands.”

The original team at Hunter Industries has grown from one to eight teams, and numerous organizations all over the world have been trying Mob Programming and developing their own techniques to amplify the benefits of working well together.  

We’ll share success stories from some who have adopted Mob Programming such as  Zeeto, Tui, Hunter, Clearlink, Corgibytes, a few others.

 

Woody Zuill & his team at Hunter were the originators of the Mob Programming approach to teamwork in software development. Over the last 15+ years he has worked as an Agile Coach, Application Development Manager, Trainer, and Extreme Programmer.

He believes that code must be simple, clean, and maintainable so that we can realize the Agile promise of Responding to Change, and that we must constantly "Inspect and Adapt".
