Join us for a monthly hands-on Mob Programming workshop! The goals of this workshop are to practice mob programming, turn up the good, learn by doing, and promote rapid knowledge sharing. Come practice with us! This workshop starts with a short discussion, then we will dive right in to mobbing on a simple programming problem! We provide plenty of opportunities to ask questions and reflect on what we're learning. All skill levels and software disciplines are welcome!!! The mob programming workshop is a risk free, safe space for you to learn and experiment!

Mob Programming is a software development practice with many benefits - it raises code quality, removes knowledge silos, minimizes mental fatigue, and more. In practice it feels more like a bulldozer than a race-car —unstoppable and thorough.

The core of mob programming is pointing many pairs of eyes on a single problem, pushing all the code through a single keyboard. Each month we'll explore different methods for learning to mob well and reaping the rewards of this practice as soon as possible on your own team.
