Code with the Wisdom of the Crowd (Pragmatic Bookshelf)
Thursday, 23 August 2018

This book aims to show how to build systems faster and more effectively with Mob Programming where a group of people work together at a single machine. Author Mark Pearl shows how to avoid the most common pitfalls that teams make when first starting out, along with what it takes to create and support a successful mob. The theme of the book is that mob programming is a natural extension of the popular Pair Programming concept, and is not restricted to a specific programming language or technology.
