If you’re at all involved in software development, you’ve likely heard of pairing or pair-programming at some point in your career. It's a practice that has been around for years in software development. Here at Quick Left, one of our #RulesOfQuickLeftEngineering is "Pairing is Caring", and I'm here to tell you all about why believe so strongly in it, and why it's been a philosophy of ours since we were founded.
Not too long ago we came up with an idea to shake things up with our hackfests: The One Night Stand. We held the infamous event last Wednesday by matching people that needed help on a project with people willing to share their skills for a couple of hours. It was a great time all around and there was even some actual code written!
Not bad, especially when you consider that nobody had to suffer the humiliation of a walk of shame.
Things I learned in kindergarten #4080: Sharing is caring. But as a headphone loving, music obsessed programmer, why must I share my keyboard, mouse and development process!? I enjoy going into the code tunnel with some good music on and cranking out solutions. Why are you trying to change me and take me out of my comfort zone!?
