Facilitating Remote Mob Programming as a Less Technical Coach
Nazee Hajebi

Imagine This: Your siloed software team starts working cross-functionally and collaboratively when all of them are working remotely. Team members say ‘our code’ instead of ‘my code’ or ‘their code'. Imagine further that you, the not-so-technical coach, have guided them through this transformation remotely and not being able to have face to face interaction in the same room with them. How can you do it? You can facilitate remote mob programming sessions that can bring the team together. Yes, even though you don’t code, you can do this! I know, because I did it. In this workshop you will learn how to facilitate a remote mob programming session as a less technical coach by collaborating with a Tech Lead/Developer as a technical backup to help with technical issues as they arise during the first and second mobbing. After we review the pre-mobbing checklist, we will dive in and do a live virtual mob programming session and I will facilitate the mobbing session. You can watch or participate as a mobber. You’ll walk out with the confidence you need to help your team to transform to a collaborative team by facilitating virtual mob programming.

This session will NOT be recorded. Attendance is first come, first serve. 

This session will be delivered on Zoom.
