Like many other things, programming tends to become easier when done as part of a team. As one of the agile software development techniques, pair programming is a way for developers to increase the quality of code, which results in fewer bugs and therefore higher efficiency.

It’s useful to work with other people, and you might even make some new friends along the way. Don’t be shy!

What is Pair Programming?

Pair programming requires two programmers to work together at one workstation. One person, the driver, writes code while the other person, the navigator, suggests ideas and reviews code as it’s written. The programmers should switch roles frequently.

Trade Gothic is a typeface first designed by Jackson Burke, who continued to

I designed a landing page to showcase the different styles within Trade Gothic and how they interact with each other.

This is important because many people continue to feel pain (and cannot perform as well) after physical recovery.
