About the Book
Back in 2009, Woody Zuill started doing strong-style randori's at conferences and trainings as a great way for everybody to code together. When Woody and his team at Hunter Industries discovered using this as a way of working every day, Mob Programming was born. When Maaret met Woody in 2014, she started experimenting with Mob Programming paying attention to including non-programmers in mobs. Mobbing actively with her team and with people she was teaching made her realize she was never a non-programmer. She has been using Mob Programming as her default mode of introducing new skills to teams, and enabling teams to learn what they have to teach to one another. Maaret expanded Mob Programming to Mob Testing, making what skilled testers do visible and teachable skill in mobs.
This book outlines the step-by-step approach to introduce Mob Programming to new teams to avoid common mistakes. It lays the foundation for successful introduction to get your entire team working together, with everybody contributing and learning, and treating each other with kindness, consideration and respect.
