Discussion on: About Pair Programming

I recently started a new job with a company that lives XP, and was super skeptical when it came to Pair Programming. I was coming from a few years of flying solo as a developer, so having another person with a different way of thinking about problems and differing opinions seemed like it would be more of a hassle. Boy was I wrong! It was definitely an adjustment, but now that I have been living pair programming for the last few months, its hard to imagine ever going back to the old way of doing things. I have learned so much from the devs on my team, and feel so much more effective and productive at the end of the day.
