Learning to Learn in a Mob

Prerequisites for attending the workshop: You will need to bring your laptop.

Mob programming, mob testing, or generally mobbing is a wonderful approach to uncover implicit knowledge and learn from each other. It’s “all the brilliant people, working on the same thing, at the same time, in the same space, and at the same computer“. But what if you introduce a new technology no one in the mob had worked with before? What if you suddenly need knowledge in the team that nobody has? Does mobbing still prove to be an efficient way of learning in that case? Join this experiment and learn something nobody in the mob has done before. Let’s see how far we get in mastering a new skill together!

Key takeaways:

  • Learn the basics of the mob approach and practice them hands-on
  • Experience the benefits of uncovering and sharing implicit knowledge to help everyone learn
  • See how having all brains in helps solve unknown challenges and get the best out of everybody
