We’re so pleased to announce that we’ve teamed up with Dave Farley, author of “Continuous Delivery” and frequent GOTO Conferences speaker, for a monthly video series featuring ideas about continuous delivery, DevOps, test-driven development, BDD, software engineering and software development in general.

Find plenty more from Dave on his Continuous Delivery YouTube channel:

Pair Programming is probably considered to be the most extreme 'Extreme Programming' practice, and a powerful technique for unlocking learning in a software development team. In this episode, Dave Farley looks at this cultural practice that supports our ability to create better software faster in continuous delivery and DevOps teams. Dave provides pair programming examples, describes some pair programming best practices, and challenges some thinking about pair programming patterns and anti-patterns.

When Kent Beck wrote about Extreme Programming (XP) he described Pair Programming as one of the technical and cultural disciplines that helped to improve the quality and efficiency of software engineering. Few teams that practice it would go back to working without it.
