Mob programming can include many roles beyond those of driver and navigator. This workshop for new or experienced mobbers introduces more ways of working in a mob. We’ll play a Role Playing game created by Willem Larsen that allows us to experience and learn about a number of possible roles beyond the Driver and Navigator roles.

We’ll code on an exercise to give us something to work with, and use some playbooks for the different roles. A playbook is what we call the sheets with icons and descriptions of roles on them such as Driver, Navigator, Mobber, Sponsor, Rear Admiral, Automationist, Nose, Archivist, and Conductor.

This is a fun session with a purpose, and the goal of this game is twofold - the first is to become a great mobber by ‘embodying the role outlined in your playbook as accurately as possible. The second one is to ‘build your mob by helping each other complete as many playbooks you can in this session. If you do this with Kindness, Consideration, and Respect, congratulations! You may join the annals of the great mobs of history.
