Pair Programming in Rockville MD on Weds 2/1/2006

Imagine working the code while constantly rethinking the grand scheme of the design in your head. Imagine catching your typos first time, every time. Imagine finding bugs twice as fast and having a good conversation about how to approach finding them. Imagine learning new techniques, ideas and strategies while working on your code everyday. If you already achieve all of these things on your own then skip the usergroup and go straight to a psychologist! If not, then come along to learn why Pair Programming is fun, productive and a tremendous improvement to the otherwise black art of lone gun programming.

I will be speaking on Pair Programming at the WinProTeam .NET User Group in Rockville, Maryland on Wednesday 1st Feb 2006.

Pair Programming is something we practice on a daily basis and have done so for a few years now. We have tried lots of different layouts and techniques to maximize productivity and developer satisfaction. If you are looking to start pair programming orare experimenting with different approaches then this session is for you!

    Hi, Jonathan,
    Very interesting presentation on Pair Programming and thanks for Pizza and prize.

    In your presentation, you mentioned using Virtual PC for remote pairing, can you pass me the reference on that one?
