Pair Programming

During a recent chat with a senior dev at work, I mentioned that I would like to try pair programming. The theory is that I would learn more from working with a more experienced dev than on my own. We had our first pair programming session today.

The project we were working on was just HTML and CSS. The experience was pretty nerve-wracking (having another dev sitting there watching me code feels a lot like public speaking), and I feel like most of what I learned was how inefficient I am. Type type, fix typo, save, refresh in browser, realize Grunt didn’t finish yet and refresh again, check various breakpoints, repeat until expected result accomplished. I’m sure there are some ways I can speed that up. Also, I should turn off all notifications when someone else is staring at my computer screen.

I think I’d get a lot more out of pair programming on JavaScript, which I have much less experience with. In any case, I’m really happy it happened, and am looking forward to more sessions.
