Event description


There are two separate (back-to-back) conferences:

The Mob Programming Conference is Saturday and Sunday, May 30 & 31, 2020.

The Agile Games Conference is Monday through Wednesday, June 1 - 3, 2020.

You can register for either or both of them. If you register for both by buying a Combo registration, you'll save more than 10% of the price you'd pay if you registered for them individually - look for the Combo registrations when you go to register.

There is an optional (separately priced) reception associated with each conference. The reception for the Mob Programming conference is in the evening of Saturday, May 30, 2020. The reception for the Agile Games conference is in the evening of Tuesday, June 2, 2020. You can purchase tickets for either or both of the receptions at the bottom of the order checkout page under the heading "Additional Items."

Each conference has a limited number of Super Early Bird and Early Bird registrations available.

Both conferences are very well suited for groups/teams to attend together. We have made very attractive group rates for each conference and the two conferences combined.

As a non-profit organization coordinating these conferences, our goal is to ensure that we produce high-quality and high-value conferences at an affordable price. Please see the "Is it possible to get a hardship discount?" section of our FAQ if you need financial assistance to help you attend the conferences.

Mob Programming Conference 2020 May 30 and May 31

All the brilliant people, working on the same thing, at the same time, in the same space, and at the same computer.

Mob programming, or “mobbing,” is a software development approach where the whole team works on the same thing, at the same time, in the same space, and at the same computer. The entire team participates in designing, coding, testing, and working with customers, users, and other stakeholders. This is an evolutionary step beyond pair programming, and accentuates the face-to-face communication, team alignment, collaboration, and self-organizing team aspects of the Agile approach to software development.

Mob programming leverages the knowledge of the entire group to make faster, better decisions. This increases the productivity of the team and the quality of their output. Mobbing also encourages cross-training and the sharing of perspectives across functions, which improve collaboration and job satisfaction.

The Mob Programming 2020 Conference includes hands-on immersive sessions that provide opportunities for all experience levels to get familiar with this powerful practice. You’ll be actively “mobbing” no matter what your starting level of familiarity is. The Mob Programming 2020 Conference also provides a track for business leaders who want to learn how to help their teams level up.

Agile Games Conference 2020 June 1 through June 3

Enhance your agile team's working skills in an interactive and fun way!

Agile games are teaching activities focused on demonstrating and improving Agile and organizational effectiveness using game-based simulations. Games can model the core of complex or time-consuming processes and systems to examine why they work (or don’t work), look for improvements, and teach us how to benefit from them.

Agile games illustrate how collaboration, brainstorming, retrospectives, and many other Agile practices work. By leveraging Agile games you and your teams can improve organizational agility and effectiveness, which is why they are now a fundamental part of many successful Agile transformations.

The Agile Games Conference is an annual event hosted by Agile New England. Each year the Agile Games Conference focuses on various themes such as games for high performing teams, psychological safety, and Agile in the real world. The conference provides an immersive exploration of some of the more interesting, playful, and fun concepts behind Agile Software Development.

This year, Agile Games is a three-day conference in Boston, Massachusetts.
