The most I took from this day was probably the pairing experience. My partner was already ahead of me and so we had to come to an agreement on the pace with which we both were happy with.
That’s the difficult part with pair programming, you have to move at the slowest partner’s paste. Or else, it’s really only one person writing the programme.
I have made the mistake to not speak up, when it’s going to quickly, because I’m busy trying to understand how it works. So I might just say yes, to not have to talk to the person and get another minute or so to think about the issue. This, I’ve learnt today, is not really helpful. Neither for my partner not for myself.
