Discussion on: I'm Changing How I Review Code

Big +1 for pair programming. The quality of the code that came from the pair-programming team I worked with was higher than any other team I've been on.

It isn't just about another pair of eyes to catch mistakes; it's about the fact that two heads are nearly always better than one, and the code/solutions that came from pairs were typically more sound/robust than code/solutions from solo devs.

yea I love the idea of pairing, and haven't gotten to do it as much as I'd like; mostly people feel uncomfortable initially to have someone else look over their thinking-process and would rather work alone and struggle through things instead. 😅
