I’ve seen setups with the “extra keyboard” and I’ve tried the VS Code Live Sharing. They both have a solid places with both positives and negatives. Thanks for the perspective!

And what where the positives and negatives?

The extra keyboard: positive, direct interaction with single instance of code. Negative, can’t look at other code while other person is typing. VS Code: positive, multi-individual interaction and allows for any file to be viewed and interacted with. Negative, needs “really” good internet connection; it can lag really badly.

Live Sharing looks great thanks for that. I just enabled gitpod on my repos that lets me run a workspace with vscode in a browser but have not had a moment to try it. I also saw a video that eclipse che lets you run a vs code workspace on Kubernetes on a browser. So it seems that remote workspace sharing is now a reality for pair programming remotely.
