You are Pair Programming

Posted on:May 4, 2022 at 12:13 PM

Just like you are testing so you might as well automate it before writing code, you also are pair programming so you might as well do it live. Writing is a conversation with another human and the quality of the writing depends on the context of the reader.


  1. Before code (TDD)
  2. After code
  3. On push
  4. Pre-merge
  5. In staging
  6. In prod
  7. By customers (fix when you see errors or complaints)

Pair Programming

  1. As you code
  2. Via code review
  3. Via issue/integration request (someone read your code, maybe it’s you!)
