Pair Programming Mind Map
I like mind maps. I use them a lot at work. And at home, I sometime use them for cooking recipes ;-) They are great to get your ideas and thoughts organized around a topic. As an exercise, I created a pair programming mind map with the characteristics that I find important about pair programming. I have been pair programming for more than a year and once you see the benefits of it it's difficult to go back to solo programming. There also some challenges and misconceptions about this practice that I wanted to capture in the map below.
