Ensemble programming, ensemble testing, or generally ensembling is a wonderful approach to uncover implicit knowledge and learn from each other.
Ensemble programming, ensemble testing, or generally ensembling is a wonderful approach to uncover implicit knowledge and learn from each other. It’s “all the brilliant people, working on the same thing, at the same time, in the same space, and at the same computer“. But what if you introduce a new technology no one in the ensemble had worked with before? What if you suddenly need knowledge in the team that nobody has? Does ensembling still prove to be an efficient way of learning in that case? Join this experiment and learn something nobody in the ensemble has done before. Let’s see how far we get in mastering a new skill together!
Having graduated in sinology, Lisi fell into agile and testing in 2009 and has been infected with the agile bug ever since. She’s especially passionate about the whole-team approach to testing and quality as well as the continuous learning mindset behind it. Building great products which deliver value together with great people is what motivates her and keeps her going. She received a lot from the community; now she’s giving back by sharing her stories and experience. She tweets as @lisihocke and blogs at www.lisihocke.com. In her free time you can either find her in the gym running after a volleyball, having a good time with her friends or delving into games and stories of any kind.See all workshops ›
