ANNOTATION

Mob programming - is it worth it to have the whole team working together on one task?

Join us to explore the possibilities of teamwork. How far can you go with collaboration in a team? Does it make sense for the whole team to work on one thing or is it better for each team member to have their own piece of work they are working on? If you answered that neither way is the right way and the right answer is somewhere in the middle, then you’ve come to the right place. In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to properly embrace Mob Programming as a technique that can help you align your team so that it works as efficiently as possible and succeeds in delivering the customer’s expected outcomes without bringing the company to a grinding halt. Along with the benefits of Mob Programming and ways to use this technique effectively, we’ll discuss the pitfalls to watch out for so that we don’t stray from the path of efficiency into the field of overpriced overthinking resulting in a demotivated and burnt out team. Which anti-patterns to avoid and what should such team-wide collaboration look like and where and when is there room and use for it? This is the main topic of our workshop.
