The Agile Manifesto Values and Principles have a strong focus on collaboration. Most of us who create software have spent much of our career working alone, and while we all want to think we can collaborate when needed we've been practicing working alone every day for most of our working life. Mob Programming emerged from the efforts of a team trying to learn to work well together, and this session will cover ways that a coach can help a team find their own style as they go from "solo contributors" to real teamwork. It's not a matter of teaching, but rather about creating a space where a team can flourish.

Learning Outcomes:
  • How a coach can enhance the ability of a team to make improvements
  • Ways to help the team find important things the team needs to improve
  • Techniques for helping team members learn to collaborate
  • Techniques for creating that space where people can flourish
  • The importance of paying attention, and some important things to focus on
  • The value of listening, and kindness, consideration, and respect
  • How to proceed if I don't know how to code?
