  • Funny, but my experience is pretty much the opposite. Pairing helps me stay in the zone (okay, Pairing and TDD in combination). Pairing because I get burned out less, if I get tired my pair will start driving. TDD because it makes getting back into the zone very easy because I know exactly what I was doing - making the next test pass.

    These are really interesting posts BTW. Have you considered posting them to the extremeprogramming@yahoogroups.com list too? I'm sure people would find it interesting, and you might get some useful info.

    • I started to write a long reply but I realized that some of what I wanted to say would be inappropriate for a public journal. Suffice it to say that there are other issues and not being able to discuss all of them openly distorts what's going on. I tried to be fair in the parent post, but there's only so much I can do.

      And I'm glad you find the posts interesting. I hadn't thought about posting this the yahoogroups list. I'm afraid of being burned at the stake :)

        I, for one, was a little bit shocked when I looked at the parent post and saw how long it was, but it turned out to be a very good reading :-) Thanks :-)

        I hope it was obvious that I wasn't trying to criticise, just offer an alternate experience. If not, apologies :-)

        They've not bitten my head of yet!
