Pair Programming Productivity

I was chatting with a developer last week about how his productivity increased when he started to pair at work, due to the social aspect of things. Later that same night I spoke to someone who had the opposite experience, which I will save for another day :)

    So true.

    That is 100% correct. It’s the subject I can’t touch when I’m evangelizing pair programming, because neither the developers nor the managers want to hear that we are lazy dudes who will screw around when we should be programming. But it is where a big chunk of productivity gain comes from.

    Very very true… when I’m paring I feel a lot more focused… I think it’s because I don’t want the other person to think I’m slacking off. ;)

    Depends on the work environment too. If the team practises XP or scrum with daily stand-ups, i doubt there is time to “..read blogs all day”. =D
