"I've read about peoples' experiences at companies where every line of code is pair programmed [...] My favourite setup that I've experienced so far is a team where pair programming was left up to the developers"
Absolutely. I recently worked in a company where pair programming was enforced all the time by managers who didn't understand the benefits of pair programming.
It practically has made me hate it, when in fact I used to love it.
PS: Good to see Jordan being mentioned here in the dev community :)
Thanks for sharing Carlos, that’s very interesting.
Jordan’s breakdown of the pair programming roles is really great!
