On Our Radar
It was a week of revisiting older threads and asking lots of questions. Mawburn got the Pair Programming conversation started, and we’d love to know what your experience with Pair Programming has been. Does it feel like someone’s looking over your shoulder? is it useful for on boarding or when someone leaves? Does it create ultimately better, less buggy code?
