Pair With Me on Anything!
published Monday, April 8, 2013
Last week I saw Avdi Grimm give an excellent talk at Ancient City Ruby. He talked about his experience being a remote pairing consultant and what it was like to pair with lots of people. He reflected on the benefits of working like this and the perspective its given him.
Near the end of the talk he challenged the audience to pair both more often and also more widely. He asked whether people would be willing to pair with a stranger and a majority of the hands in the room went up.
A website has been setup to help facilitate this project and he mentioned some Twitter hashtags to help connect people. It was a great talk and I was inspired to set aside some time to do more remote pairing.
I've added a page to this site where you can send me a note to find a time to remote pair. I'm also going to find people that I'd like to pair with and ask them if they've got time.
So, if you have something you'd like to pair on, please use that form or hit me up on Twitter and let's figure out a time to work together!
