Continually experimenting with new ideas and techniques — Reconstructing, Developing, Modernising.
Recent lifestyle changes have left me with more energy and desire to learn, so I am looking into doing some remote pairing with some friends in the city. I expect that working with people I already have a relationship with will help get the kinks out of my setup, and then I can look to people further afield.
One thing I think I’ll miss is the food and beer afterwards, but that might be an advantage from the perspective of my wife and my doctor!
This has a couple of benefits for me:
For now I have some simple scripts at https://github.com/mikestok/pairing-vps which I use to build a VPS. There are lots of routes open to improve them, and I want to get the pair programming experience first before burning hours on perfecting a useless system.
