There is nothing more antithetical to the activity of writing code than pair programming. Worst. Idea. Ever

Interesting. Wouldn't antithesis of writing code actually mean the act of removing the written code? Surely you might mean something different here. Nevertheless, how about you share some experiences of yours?

Writing code is an adjacent activity to pairing. Pairing and mobbing are about thinking and collaborating together, code is just a side-effect of that.
