No multitasking

Lisi is our guest for episode #9. We will analyse the heuristic “No multitasking” from the Xebia Essentials repository (https://essentials.xebia.com/no-multitasking/). Lisi shares her methods to keep track when switching contexts; on an individual level but also at a team level. Entering into multitasking and team level, she shares her insights about Mob Programming, and how it changes a team. Ranging from the culture to the quality of the software, she leads us in her experiences.

Lisi recommends her resource list for collaboration, pairing and mobbing: https://www.lisihocke.com/p/collaboration-pairing-and-mobbing.html.

Lisi (@lisihocke) graduated in sinology, and fell into agile and testing in 2009, and have been infected with the agile bug ever since. She is 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. Within her teams, she often thinks of being the glue, as well as “the little burr under the saddle blanket that gets people thinking about changing and trying new things”.

She received a lot from the community; now, she is giving back by sharing stories and experiences. She tweets as @lisihocke, blogs at www.lisihocke.com, and speaks at meetups and conferences.

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.
