  • I mean you're a super CPAN magnet, with vast swathes of lovely code behind you. Stuff in Perl core, too. But for 90% of the rest of us that aren't so hot, it's a good idea. It tends to catch the really silly mistakes before the file even hits the disk. And the interface design ones too.


    • It's not really a matter of skill -- it's just the experience of sitting next to somebody and sharing a machine with them for hours at a time. It just crowds my space. I'm probably just being neurotic this way -- but I think a lot of programmers feel the same way.


      We are all Garbo now.

      • Yeah, a lot of programmers are scared to death of things they've never done before.

          I agree with TorgoX, and it is entirely, completely, absolutely unrelated to whether or not I have done it before.

          The two coders I work with the most are halfway across the country, and all the way across the country. I've not seen either one in close to two years. We work on IRC together, pointing out line numbers, pasting in code, emailing diffs. We keep the code in CVS and I we look over each other's changes. I much prefer that. Perhaps some things slip through the cracks that wouldn't in pair programming, but there are things more important than that, such as sanity and longevity.
