Limited Capacity seats available

Pair programming is presented as a straightforward and intuitive practice but is highly relational and difficult to master. When pair programming is done right, it increases productivity, code quality, and developer happiness. But when done wrong, it leads to frustration and resentment.
In this workshop, you will learn how to leverage the strengths of your pair, recognize unhealthy pair programming dynamics, work through conflicts, have difficult conversations, and adjust for power imbalances.
We will do several interactive exercises starting with a fun pairing exercise and work towards how to handle more challenging situations.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Participants will learn practical techniques to improve the pair programming dynamic, discuss their expectations for the relationship, work through conflict, and adjust for any power imbalances.
