Even Sherlock Holmes was pairing. Are you? Let’s find some good practices in the talk below about Sherlock Holmes and Pairing!

During my work I am used to pair with my colleagues on basically anything. I do pair-programming when I develop software, we use pairing when we deliver trainings or when we write articles. I often do remote pair-programming with strangers. The most things I learned during the last years were by working in pair with someone I barely knew.
Pairing for me has the following main advantages:
– I learn a lot from my pair
– I extend my comfort zone and I collaborate better with anyone
– the product we work together is a lot better because four eyes are better than two

Please find examples from the activities of the well-known fictional character Sherlock Holmes on how his pair Dr. Watson helps him become better and finding the answer to their riddles.
