comment When does pair programming work for you? When should you avoid it?
Me too. Pretty much only in defect tracking and even then it's more brainstorming and philosophy than actual programming.

comment How do I deal with a slow and undedicated colleague in the team?
Maybe his software is an order of magnitude more complex than the Ashin's. Taking the hard line with a colleague you have to work closely with but havent bothered to get to know is anti-social, counter productive and very unprofessional.

on the other hand, there are programmers that write the code themselves and still don't understanding it...

comment Do most programmers copy and paste code?
Maybe many programmers don't copy/paste actual code on a large scale, but they will happily leverage a ready-made library (free or otherwise) without looking at a single line of code...

comment “Comments are a code smell”
Hmmmm. Comments should primarily explain what code does, not how or why. I need to know what a function does, not why or how.
