Mob Programming

As an XP guy, I’m a big fan of pair programming.

(Somewhere I have slides of coworkers pairing: I should find them and post them.)

I’ve also had great success with coding dojos that focus on pairing.

(Interesting: locally there are dojos for kids that need mentors. I might apply…)

However, I’ve never really had more than two people coding on the same screen.

Apparently mob programming is now a thing.

Here is a book, and here are some slides from Rachel Davies.

I can’t wait to try this, and to see if I can coach others to try this technique.
