comment How common is pair programming in the workplace?
@Perndas, I was assuming, perhaps incorrectly, that the resistance would be due to egos. At least when I've seen it, that appears to be the reason. I've only seen 2 (that I recall) devs actually resist this. One's ego couldn't fit in the room, the other had issues w/ confidence.

@Michael, not always, but sometimes I thinking pairing on legacy code can be useful. It can break down silo's and/or reduce refactoring costs. That said, I completely agree w/ you.

You are welcome. Our turnover has been pretty low... 4 of us have shared the same office for 15+ years though 4 relocations (across 4 buildings and 2 states)!

This profession requires keeping ego's in check. It's not always easy, but the rewards will be extremely beneficial.

comment What to do about “Failure Driven Development”?
Given the comment "mismatch between CampA and CampB is a political issue..." I'm marking this as the 'correct' answer.

comment What to do about “Failure Driven Development”?
We actually have an Agile coach. I should have mentioned that. It was he and I who coined the term FDD. As far as product owner, it's also the customer. Who happens to be large enough that their enterprise is conducive to this behavior.

comment Separate servers vs local machine for builds, issue tracking etc on solo project
I would add a pro for separate server is you know you have everything under source control. You can't forget to commit something.

comment Is SourceSafe really safe?
With all the alternatives, it's hard to justify using, because when it goes south, that's what you'll have: Nothing.
