Two Brains = Happiness Squared: A pair programming primer
by Jason Garber
You’ve heard of pair programming, but does it actually work? How true are the productivity and quality claims? And ultimately, will it make you a happier Ruby developer?
Jason and his coworkers have perfected the pair-programming setup, found many useful tools, and are converging on the right balance of pairing vs. soloing. Learn from our experiments, get a jump-start with best practices, and stock up on ammo for convincing your boss that pairing produces better code, saves money, and keeps good developers around.
This talk has not been given elsewhere. I am working on a short book about pair programming.
