The power of the pair Roasting Marshmallows

    • Business

Way back in episode 13, we discussed mobbing, or ensemble programming, with Woody Zuill. While we think this topic deserves more widespread recognition and adoption, there’s no denying that pair programming is more well known, and is being done more.

Of course, pairing is not limited to just programming. For example, studies have shown that kindergarteners sharing an iPad enables them to learn more and score better on certain tests, most likely due to forcing them to collaborate, which in turn emphasises communication and sharing alternative viewpoints.

Collaboration and communication are the key words here, and increasing that will eventually yield  significant benefits, such as increased quality, widespread knowledge and improved morale. These things will all contribute to a higher productivity.

So today we are discussing these benefits, but also drawbacks, of pairing!
