Session: How pairing adds value
Wednesday 11.10 - 12.00
Room: Ken Lee
Some teams avoid pairing. Other teams embrace it to the point that they avoid working solo. What enables teams to find so much benefit in pairing that they wouldn't work any other way? And is pairing only for coding? Lisa will share her experiences with teams that find value in pairing for coding AND testing. Participants will join a discussion about how teams can nurture a pairing culture, and how pairing adds value to several aspects of software development.
