Limited Capacity seats available

Mob Programming is a development approach where the whole team works on the same thing, at the same time, in the same space, and at the same computer. The Whole Team works together to do almost all the work the team does - including coding, designing, testing, and working with the customer (partner, Product Owner, user, etc). We have expanded the "team" nature of all the work we do, not just the planning, retrospectives, and daily stand-up or other meetings, but all the work that the team does.

In other words, this is an evolutionary step to Agile concepts such as pair programming, face-to-face communication, team alignment, collaboration, and "self organizing team".

Although we presented this as a talk at Agile 2013, I'd like to submit this as an Experience Report to document and publish the things we have learned in almost 3 years of development efforts and delivery of high value, high quality software.

I'll share:

* What it looks like

* The results we've had

* Some unexpected benefits we've found

* Why we think it has worked so well for us

* A few practices we find particularly useful
