In This Podcast

Our latest podcast is a conversation with Michael Keeling and Joe Runde who presented a curated report at Agile 2019 on Harvesting Mob Programming Patterns. Listen as Michael and Joe explain how they came to share and compare the ways their teams were mob programming and were inspired to write some mobbing patterns. These patterns as well as some anti-patterns (or what not to do) are described further in their written experience report. Michael and Joe also found that mob programming proved an effective way to onboard new team members. And, once their teams started mobbing, they kept at it because it was productive, fun, and energizing. Once Michael and Joe put names to their various patterns of behavior and collaboration, they could be more intentional about what they were doing. It also helped them communicate better with their teammates.
