An online mob programming research tool is coming soon, but the project is in limbo.
A team of researchers working under the banner Mob Programming Research, which was founded by Mob Programming Software founder and CEO Robert Lutz, says it plans to begin the research in the fall of 2018.
Mob Programming researchers say they’re looking for a number of companies to help them build their research, including those in the gaming and entertainment industries.
“It’s going to be very interesting to see how it all works out,” Lutz said.
Lutz is currently working on a book about mob programming called Mob Programming 101, which will be available to schools in September.
Mob programming research has been a staple of the mob arena industry since its inception.
That research can reveal how to use the mob programming software to play and watch a game, and to find the right mob in the game.
Luths book will be a follow-up to his popular Mob Programming Handbook, which has been available for years.
The book, Lutz’s company says, “explores the most popular mob programming programs in history and how to make your own, which is very useful for both gamers and programmers alike.”
Lutz says Mob Programming research will be open to the public, but only those with a PhD in computer science, engineering or mathematics will be able to access the research.
Luts research is being done on a voluntary basis, and no payment will be made.
Lutzes research is aimed at helping gamers find the best mob in a game or watching a movie, but Lutz admits it’s not going to offer “real world applications” like game-play research.
Mob Research is a collaboration between Mob Programming and Lutz and Mob Programming Associates, which also helps developers build the software.
LUTZ says his team of 15 people will be looking for “a few thousand dollars per year” to conduct their research.
The group has been working with a few companies in the mob software arena for the past few years, including GameStop and Sony.
Luttz says his group has a strong relationship with the two companies, and he’s excited to see what Mob Programming develops.
“We can be pretty sure that they’re going to put a lot of resources into the development of Mob Programming,” Lutts said.
