How Mob Programming helps collaboration and getting work done

Francesco Strazzullo interviews Woody Zuill

We love having our experts talk to each other and discuss topics they’re the best experts of.
This is why we asked Francesco Strazzullo, author of the book Frameworkless Frontend Development, to interview the Godfather of Mob Programming, Mr. Woody Zuill.

What follows is an interesting conversation among two brilliant minds on the impact Mob Programming has had in their careers, the way this is used in their training courses, and how a more collaborative approach can help you write better code… all together!

Get the most out of Product Discovery Strategy with EventStorming and Lean Value Tree

How does a product discovery strategy look like for a software development team?
In most of the cases, it’s still a long list of things due by a specific date. The expectation of the managers, even in digital products, is to see these new features going out as soon as possible, without considering too much the motivation behind. So it’s not uncommon to experience a lack of alignment and accountability between people at different stages to a common business goal. Moreover, despite the best intentions of the original planners, the level of details defined in the product strategy is limiting the possibilities for teams to act based on what they learn.

LEGO® SERIOUS PLAY® per una migliore collaborazione e comunicazione nei team

Intervista a Jacopo Romei e Lorenzo Massacci

Avanscoperta: Ciao Jacopo, ben trovato! Ciao Lorenzo, ben arrivato a bordo! 🙂
Ci raccontate in breve chi siete, di cosa vi occupate e cosa vi accomuna?

Jacopo: Ciao! Aiuto le aziende dedite al knowledge work a prendere decisioni migliori, le aiuto a mettere in piedi una governance efficace. Quindi lavoro con team di lavoro, consigli di amministrazione, amministratori delegati, manager e creativi. Cos’è il “knowledge work”? Potrei scrivere “lavoro creativo” per usare l’italiano, ma non sarei letto nel modo giusto! È il lavoro che produce sempre pezzi unici e non seriali, quello di sviluppatori software, designer, editori, architetti, agenzie di comunicazione e via dicendo.
Lorenzo ed io – ormai da quasi 10 anni e spesso fianco a fianco – siamo accomunati dalla ricerca di modi meno “spreconi” e, perché no, più piacevoli di lavorare in team.

Node.js: non solo uno strumento server-side. Q&A con Matteo Collina

“Once upon a time, I learned programming on my father’s lap (yes, I was young). Back then, I didn’t worry too much about architecture. I just wanted to write video games so that I could play them”.

Matteo Collina è un software engineer ed esperto di Internet of Things (IoT), appassionato di codice, architetture distribuite e metodologie agili. Lavora oggi per nearForm.

Qui una breve intervista con Matteo su Node.js. Buona lettura! 🙂
