I recently read a blog post from @maaret
which I found really useful to differentiate between the styles of pair testing that you can try.
I’ve tried pairing before with mixed levels of success. I even spoke about it at Leeds Test Atelier. In the beginning, it really didn’t work for me and the other software tester I was pairing with. We weren’t totally engaged in the activity at all.
I was wondering if you have tried pairing, how successful were you? Have you any suggestions of common mistakes people make when they are starting out with pairing? How would you overcome those?
