re: My Experience with Pair Programming VIEW POST

FULL DISCUSSION
 

I find pair programming SO useful when there's a difficult debugging task at hand, for all the reasons you mention. It can be very useful to have a second brain on standby to challenge assumptions!

I also agree it's excellent for learning and mentoring - I've picked up so much from pair programming and seeing someone else's approach to a problem, not just the resulting code. Plus, challenging myself to explain what I'm doing and why has helped solidify a lot of my own learning and soft skills :)

 

Yes, I always learn new stuff!

It's a lot better to watch someone write it and ask the questions there and then instead of watching it go through code review.
