This is a cool one, it’s .NET Rocks episode 912, Mob Programming with the MobProgramming Team.
So you’ve heard about Pair Programming? It’s when two developer’s work together. One is coding and the other one say what to code. Mob Programming takes this to a whole different level. These are five guys working together with coding being done on one single computer. It sounds crazy at first but listening to the podcast I got reallly impressed and curious.
The team have gain a lot with this and the funny thing is that they don’t recommend this to anyone. That might be right, I think that it’s probably not many team that can work like this.
What these guys have seen is however a tremendous decrease in bugs (almost none), increased productivity and better solutions.
