Unlikely tools for pair programming



Co-conspirators Jamey Sharp and Josh Triplett get up to a lot of miscellaneous hacking mischief together. Much of this hacking occurs while staring at the same screen, and tag-teaming the keyboard. Sometimes this happens with the two of them in different places. Learn how we manage this and why it's awesome.


Open Source distributed hacking is awesome, but you knew that already. Pair programming is awesome too, and you might not have known that yet. But Open Source hackers don’t tend to do much pair programming, except perhaps at the occasional conference hack session. We want to show you some tools and techniques for pair programming in a distributed manner, and some case studies where we solved hard problems this way.
