The second zine of the series focuses on how to develop a habit of pairing and intermediate techniques to build your pairing skills both when your hands are on the keyboard as well as when you’re a bit more hands off. It builds on the skills and vocabulary learned in Let’s Pair!
Let’s Pair! packages real-world pairing insights into a series of adorable, author-illustrated zines. All zines are available for digital pre-order now, with delivery planned for January 2019.
Pairing is a technique in which two or more people tackle a problem together. Doing so can speed up development, create better code, create collective ownership of code on a team, and increase the teams’ overall cohesion.
This zine series starts with the foundations, then dives into more advanced techniques and philosophies. They may be purchased in a digital bundle.
