What is Pair Programming?

So you’re working on a project with another person or group of people for the first time, and you’re unsure of how to stay motivated or stay focused, what on earth do you do? Well there are multiple solutions to said issue, but we’ll be talking about a specific technique called pair programming.

What is Pair Programming?

Pair programming is the practice of two people coding together. One person (the driver) will type the code, while another person (the navigator) will review that piece of code and give feedback or tips. In-person pair programming is done with coders side by side, but it can also be done virtually through screensharing and video calls. This method of coding allows for less bugs, transfer of information and ideas between coders, and can allow for more focus.
