Embracing uncertainty is a powerful tool for professional growth and collaboration. This is why saying "I don't know" is not a sign of weakness but of strength in my opinion!
For the past years, I have been working in a self-steering development team. For the past months, due to team setup changes, I have noticed that we are less and less aligned about certain cases and I feel like we are not really working autonomously. I have captured that feeling on one of our last retrospectives by adding a post-it: “Are we ALIGNED, and do we still have AUTONOMY?"
In software development, collaboration and knowledge sharing are crucial for creating high-quality software and building a cohesive team. In this blog post, I'll explain what mob programming is, how we implemented it in our team, and the pros and cons we discovered. I want to explicitly say that a lot of it is opinionated and mainly based on my own personal experience.
