Applied Pair Programming

I just finished this book in an effort to become a better pair at work. I learned a lot and it was a quick and easy read. Some of the interesting tidbits that I picked up were:
  1. Say aloud what you are doing to your pair
  2. Pairs should be very talkative (there should never be more than a minute of silence)
Lots of great advice on how to deal with a difficult pair and different personalities. I could add few myself: LISTEN, LISTEN, and LISTEN! And trust in your partner to do the right thing. Anyway, if you're doing pair programming, it's a must read!
