Pair programming in Perl
I got to do Pair Programming in Perl as part of a job interview yesterday, doing a small test-driven development exercise. Moments of terror (and using a strange keyboard) aside, it was fun, and I picked up a couple of useful keyboard/mouse shortcuts. The osmotic spread of little workflow tricks is one of the neat side-effects of Pairing. Such stuff is invisible by the time you get to a formal code review.
