Discussion on: Why I'm not a fan of pair programming

My main experience with pair programming was in school, where during labs we would group up at computers and work through a problem presented to us. Thus I see pair programming as having a great benefit for people who want to learn and have equivalent experience. I actually learned a lot during those labs, sometimes more so than when I was doing homework, but often it just helped me look at programming in a new way.

I honestly don't see pair programming as being as beneficial in a professional setting, since the goal isn't really to learn but to solve a business problem and the reasons you described in your article.
