Woody Zuill on Mob Programming and Influencing Change
Working on a software development team where everyone does their work separately – and thinking of trying something new?
Today I have a special guest, Woody Zuill, who is the leading voice in our industry around the concept of Mob Programming.
If this is the first time you’ve heard of it, Mob Programming is essentially an entire team working together with only one person’s hands on the keyboard.
There are some surprising advantages to this approach that you may not have encountered before.
I hope this interview with Woody gives you some insight into how this practice may help you.
I learned some really interesting things about the origin of this practice and how Woody found himself in the position of being its primary spokesperson.
The interview is also filled with valuable advice about influencing change and earning credibility to help software development teams be more agile – whatever that means to you :).
