🤖 A Jira Senior Developer's thoughts on remote pair programming

Bridget Community Manager Sep 30, 2020

Hello, Tech enthusiasts! Are you ready for October to begin 🙀?

I wanted to share with you an Article I came across from Work/Life (The Atlassian blog) from a senior developer on the Jira team about the tools and techniques that make remote pair programming successful.

In the article, they talk about why you should try remote pair programming, how to get started, tools of the trade, etc. If you have any thoughts on the piece, leave them in the comments below - I'm interested to hear about your experience with remote pair programming!

I haven't been involved in any way with RPP. However, I have found it mentioned more and more w/in the Community of late. Mostly around the sensitive topic of not being able to assign issues to a team.

Hi @Jack -- I wonder if what you note is one of the aspects of doing the work: selection versus implementation.

For selection, we could have push (leader assigned work) or pull (self-assigned work).

And implementation could be how the team delivers it: solo people in a cave/cubicle, pairing, mobbing, etc., co-located or remote or a mix.

Both (selection and implementation) need to deal with accountability, and I have definitely noted chatter about accountability sliding with remote work...especially when leader expectations were not aligned with teams before "everyone-work-from-home" times started.

Best regards,
