Mob Programming with the MobProgramming Team
Carl and Richard try something new - doing a mob style interview about mob programming! Mob programming takes agile to a new extreme where several people (more than two) work together to write code... resulting in very high quality code! The conversation digs into the actual process of writing code (drivers and navigators), the various roles that participants fall into, how more minds end up with more code reuse, testing, QA and the great sense of connection that comes with mob programming. You gotta try this!

Woody Zuill, a Senior Consultant, Trainer, and Agile Coach with Industrial Logic, has been programming computers for 30+ years. Over the last 15+ years he has worked as an Extreme Programmer, Agile Coach, Application Development Manager, and Trainer. He believes that code must be simple, clean, and maintainable so that we can realize the Agile promise of Responding to Change, and that we must constantly "Reflect, tune, and adjust". His passion is for tackling code that is hard to maintain and cleaning, refactoring, and bringing it back into a manageable state. He is a pioneer of the Mob Programming approach to teamwork in software development, and is considered one of the founders of the "#NoEstimates" discussion on Twitter.
