What: Learn about Agile and Extreme Programming using a Mob Programming approach, With Llewellyn Falco and Woody Zuill.
When: Saturday, Dec 7, 2013 or Thursday, Dec 12, 2013
Where: San Diego Area (We haven’t chosen the exact location yet…)
We are presenting a one day workshop that will allow participants to experience a typical day of Mob Programming. We will share not only the mechanics of how to work together as a Mob, but also the underlying theory we have found make this form of development so effective. Throughout the day we will be tackling a sample project and solving it using a full “extreme programming” approach – User stories, prioritization, test-driven development, refactoring, and retrospectives.
At the end of the day you will come away from this class having experienced the joy and effectiveness of Mob Programming, as well as being equipped to continue on your own path.
Note: Part of this experience is gathering what the individual participants most want to learn and adapting the experience to enable those outcomes.
Note: Limit to 8 people per class.
