  • Rediscover team efficiency
    How 5+ people can be effective working on just one thing handling competing solutions and ideas to a coding problem
  • Learn tools for team coding
    Learn the Mobbing mechanics, the tools for team coding and how to do the workspace setup
  • Work better with the stakeholders
    Working with product owners, business expers, testers, designers as part of the team

Woody Zuill

Woody Zuill has been programming computers for 30+ years, and works as an Agile Coach and Application Development Manager. He and his team are the originators of the Mob Programming approach to teamwork in software development and he is considered one of the founders of the “#NoEstimates" discussion.


He believes that code must be simple, clean, and maintainable so that we can realize the Agile promise of Responding to Change, and that we must constantly “I“spect and Adapt”.”He has a passion taking code that is hard to maintain and cleaning, refactoring, and bringing it back into a healthy state.

More mobbing is less rework! Your workshop provided us with the insight that as a multi-disciplinary team you should focus. By working together constantly we're able to deliver more with higher quality.
