Interesting - never knew all the different types of pair programming had names :)

Have you seen pair programming that happens over a long period of time (like, years?) I know there are companies that do ALL of their programming as pairing, but I just don't know how that would feel over a long period of time. Any insight there?

Are they pairing in and out over that time (single set of code) or is it just a matter of always being a part of a pair? Not sure I’ve seen or heard of anything like it ...

I think the most famous example is thoughtbot (could be wrong about that); but I know that some companies just do it a LOT more than others; and I was wondering if you had had any experience with that :)

Unfortunately, no ... I’ll keep an eye out.
