About this Event
A MobRetreat s a full day of practicing collaborative software development as a mob of 5±1 people with TDD and refactoring. The focus is on exploring different communication approaches in each round, sharing experiences, and evaluating the differences.
Like a Coderetreat, at the beginning of the first round, each group decides which programming language is used for writing the code. Each round has its specific constraints.
Unlike a Coderetreat, the code is kept and incrementally developed by the group during that day. Changing constraints relate to communication, not the code. The group keeps the most of its original members, but one person is exchanged after each round.
The first online MobRetreat was facilitated by Dimitry Polivaev (@dimitrypolivaev) and Bob Allen (@CuriosAgilist) on the 25th of April 2020. It connected Software Crafters from India, Europe, and the USA.
Global Day of MobRetreat is an annual global event where passionate programmers come together to hone their skills from all over the world.
Below is the schedule that we set for the day. However, we will be flexible with the schedule to improve the experience of the audience.
