Since Covid-19, many people work from home. Typical team events are cancelled. With the »Remote Mob Programming Experience« INNOQ offers a unique team event that is a lot of fun and can be done from home.
The term »mob programming« has been defined by Woody Zuill as follows: Everyone in a team works on the same thing, at the same time, in the same place, and on the same computer. Remote mob programming uses a virtual Zoom room instead of a meeting room and the shared screen instead of a computer. In this way the team works together intensively.
We have been using this method very successfully in client projects for over two years now. We have publicized our experiences with it on a dedicated website and in articles, podcasts, and presentations. But these contributions provide only a limited impression of how remote mob programming really feels and how different the approach is from the traditional division of labor in software development.
We therefore developed a format that allows remote mob programming to be experienced – in the form of a one-day team event for five people. One of our facilitators – Dr. Simon Harrer, Jochen Christ, Martin Huber, or Franziska Dessart – takes on the role of product owner, while the participants form the development team. By means of a humorous but realistic case study, everyone experiences a typical remote mob programming workday. Planning, conceiving, discussing, programming, and even the writing of emails is all done together. But above all: Learning and laughing together – just what the team needs to grow closer together.
Throughout the day, we use short retros to reflect on the process. The tools we use are Zoom for the video conference, Miro as the communal whiteboard, and mob for the Git handover. The programming language is determined by you. We promise: This day will be a lot of fun!
