Mob Programming Conference

Mob Exploring

With Lisa Crispin

Exploratory testing is a great way to uncover hard-to-detect bugs, flush out missing features and hidden assumptions, and learn about a wide range of quality characteristics. Strong-style pairing and mobbing with a diverse group makes this even more powerful. Let’s try it!

 

How Our Company Joined The Mob

A talk and discussion with Torrey Powell and Nate Wixom

 

We will take you on the fascinating journey of adopting mob programming in a large scale environment.  From a management and leadership perspective, we will be discussing: benefits both expected and unexpected, culture change, corporate acceptance, and hurdles overcome by incorporating a team approach to mob programming.
 
 

Optimizing our Organizations for Effective Mobbing 

With Marcus Hammarberg

With teams working closely in mobs the surrounding organization needs to shift to support the new found effectiveness and shifted focus to learning. Welcome to a session to explore what kind of challenges and opportunities this will pose. For example; How does the rest of your organization interact with them?  What structures encourage mobbing success? 
 
We will take a standpoint in flow, lean, business value and Conway’s law to then, in true mob programming fashion, together come up with challenges and how we, or our executives, can support them better. 
 
 

Coding in a new world - serverless, tank wars

With Marcus Hammarberg

 

Experience mobbing in a serverless environment, which hugely improves flow within the team; from deploy to deployed in a world class clouds in matter of seconds.

In this session we will create programs that simulate tanks that tries to outmaneuver each other on a battlefield. 
 
Learning and lightning fast iterations are of the essence for the mob that wants to win!
