Pairing peaks and troughs
20 August 2014
Like many parts of Xtreme Programming, pairing is hard. It’s hard in a way that can’t easily be quantified in a blog post. And like many things, the best way to get better is to practice, practice, practice.
A pair can have moments that are both ups and downs. One pair can work well one day and terribly the next. Which type of day you’ll have is never guaranteed. But what is guaranteed is that the more the two of you pair together, the less likely you are to have terrible days.
