Better Together

This week I had the privilege of pairing on a front end project with a developer. This was awesome in more ways than one.

Stick figures pairing.
"Why is it DOing that?!" "Because Rails likes to put everything in divs."

This project is rather tricky, so it was great to be able to work with someone that is an expert in knowing where to find everything and understands how everything is structured.

Alone, it would have taken me quite a while to get to a point where I felt comfortable enough to start working, but with the developer there, working with me, we started work immediately, not wasting any time. He tought me and I learned, while we worked.

I hope that I continue to have the opportunity to pair with developers in the future. It's a fun and insightful way to work.
