This will be a hands-on session where we’ll work together code on some simple exercises while we discuss some important aspects of Mob Programming. We’ll learn about the underlying concepts of Mob Programming, and a few of the techniques that we use for working well together.

You will see how to use the basic guideline that led to Mob Programming on our original team: “For an idea to go from someone’s head into the computer it must go through someone else’s hands - Llewellyn Falco”.

We’ll experience what it means to take on the two basic roles of Driver and Navigator - the driver is at the keyboard taking the next step as guided by the navigator, and while the driver is coding the navigator is thinking about the next steps we’ll take.

There are a few other important concepts we’ll cover, such as what to do when there are two conflicting ideas, the importance of using the whiteboard, and what to do when we don’t know what to do.
