Developing in pairs is sometimes more difficult than debugging a thousand lines of assembly code with an old DOS console. Each one of us comes with baggage, full of emotions and experiences that we can all too easily offload on to our pair.
 It doesn’t have to be that difficult. Simple rules and habits can make our pairing experience easier. Everyone knows the term “Communication is the key”, but that doesn’t mean we know how to actually communicate. Body language can make a huge difference. Distance too.
