Driver / Navigator Roles • Driver – Has hands on the keyboard and types – Does nothing without direction from Navigator • Navigator – Explains idea to be translated into code – Ideas flow from Navigator to Driver Level of explanation depends – Conceptual, if the Driver is more experienced – More detailed, if the Driver is less experienced 10

Other Mob Programming Roles • Other Mobbers – Those who are not the current Driver or Navigator – Ask clarifying questions – Share areas of expertise – Make suggestions, only if asked by the current Navigator in an Navigator Leads Strongly style mob – Make suggestions more freely in other style mobs – Prime Navigator always decides • Facilitator – Guides mobbing practices – Similar role to XP or Agile Coach – Doesn’t rotate with the mob 11

  15. 15. Test Driven Development Feedback Loop Write a test for new low level functionality Run the test and watch it fail (no code = test fails) Write just enough code to make the test pass Run the test and watch it pass Clean up complex or messy code Run test again to make sure it still passes Check in Code & Tests Check in Code & Tests 16 Red Green Refactor
