This talk is my feedback of 3 years of full-time pair-programming. By full-time I mean that when I arrive in the morning at work I do not have my own computer. I share a computer all the day with another developer of my team. Besides, a pair in our team can not stay the same more than one week.
At first sight, it might looks easy, amazing and a kind of luxury. Instead of having one person to develop a new functionality we have two persons that work together on it.
In reality, it is a tiring but exciting work: 'Tiring' because you need to have more skills than solo developers. Among these skills we can mention: coordination, accuracy, stamina, flexibility, balance, etc. 'Exciting' because it challenges you and if it does not challenge you it does not change you. The challenge is not only technical but also human and psychological.
