Discussion on: What does pair programming look like for your team?

Yup, my team does peer programming, mostly in two cases: 1) if one part of the team doesn't have a specific knowledge or 2) if it is small but high impact feature (i.e. financial transaction with some funky calculations involved).

In my experience, it is good to have lead-follower combination, because one person will have better knowledge, but still it should be informal and friendly. :)

Time tracking is used and useful, because these things can quickly add up and escalate (eat parts of sprint or cause time gaps). :)
