If you think pairing programming ( 2 people on 1 computer ) is crazy, hold onto your hats; it’s time for Mob Programming.

Mob Programming: All the brilliant people working on the same thing, at the same time, in the same place, and on the same computer.

We are going to take a look at a new way of working, what it looks like, and why it can work. More importantly, we’ll have a (very) short session of actual mobbing, so you can see for yourself and come to your own conclusions.
