Mob Programming, A Whole Team Approach

Woody Zuill Hunter Industries, San Diego California


Mob Programming is a development practice where the whole team works on the same thing, at the same time, in the same space, and at the same computer. This is a Whole Team approach to doing all the work the team does – including coding, designing, testing, and working with the customer (partner, Product Owner, user, etc).

We have expanded the team nature of all the work we do – not just planning, retrospectives, and a daily standup or other meeting – but all the work that the team does.
This is an evolutionary step to the pair programming, face-to-face communication, team alignment, collaboration, and self organizing team concepts of the Agile approach to software development.

I’ll share how we’ve been using this as our daily practice to super-charge our development efforts and deliver high value software for over three years. We’ll see what it looks like, the benefits, and how to do it yourself. In our workplace we Mob Programm all day, every day, but we’ll also explore some ideas on how you can employ all of the concepts and practices (and get the benefits) of Mob Programming in your own company even if you can’t do it all day, every day .

Woody Zuill has been programming computers for 30+ years, and works as an Agile Coach and Application Development Manager for Hunter Industries, a manufacturer of high quality and innovative irrigation products. His team is the originator of the Mob Programming approach to teamwork in software development, and Woody is considered one of the founders of the #NoEstimates discussion on Twitter.
