In a way, pair programming is like riding a bicycle. You can read a book about it, you can watch videos of people doing it, but you really learn it by doing it.
This workshop will give people a chance to not only experience pair programming, but examine that experience in depth and see how their practice can be improved.
The "promiscuous pairing" technique will be used, followed by an extended feedback session where participants will analyse the strengths of pairing, and look at how they can improve interactions with their partners.
Participants should bring along their own laptop.
Target Audience: Anyone who wants to experience pairing. Beginners, and also those wanting to improve their practice.
Prerequisites: The ability to write code. You will probably use new languages, but help will be available.
