Ahh!! It's a Mob of philanthropic humanitarians. What will we do?!?! Quick pull down an open source refactorable project from GitHub and set them on it. Come join the group mind and help transform code in a mob. All roles and skill levels are welcome. We will start the session with basic mob etiquette and ground rules, then pull a project and start mobbing. The mob will determine which project, what we change, and where we go from there. The goal will be real-world practice mobbing with real-world impact. The mobbed work will be submitted back to the repo at the end of the session. This will be an extreme live coding experience. Mobbing is a great way to get high productivity from a large group of people with a mix of skill sets and experience. It also improves knowledge transfer, creativity in the solution, and helps maintain a higher level of focus. This leads to more consistent team results. You will leave with a valuable new tool to incorporate into your team.
