Pair programming accelerates development.

Everything is awesome, everything is cool when you’re part of a team.

Programming with a friend has many advantages over programming alone. These include:

  • You automatically gain two experts on this section of the code. This avoids the problem where only one person knows how some particular thing works.
  • Problems are solved more quickly.
  • Integration is faster.
  • There is better adoption of standards and style. Not everything is caught by the automated style enforcement tools, so it helps a lot to have two people working together to ensure that software is written the right way.
  • You will handle interruptions better.
  • People are can be brought up to speed more quickly. This is particularly helpful when a new person joins a team.
