but the process is look like what?I do my code you do your part or both working on the same thing?

btw working on something in group or in pair sounds good :slight_smile:

In my experience, one guy works while the other guy watches.
You can also agree to work on separate things at the same time if on a large project.
In a professional set up you make changes via forks/branches and merge in changes when done.
I’ve done 2 full stack apps. For both I was pair programming, although I finished both myself.


One, the driver, writes code while the other, the observer or navigator,[1] reviews each line of code as it is typed in. The two programmers switch roles frequently.
While reviewing, the observer also considers the “strategic” direction of the work, coming up with ideas for improvements and likely future problems to address. This frees the driver to focus all of their attention on the “tactical” aspects of completing the current task, using the observer as a safety net and guide.

Cheers and happy coding :slight_smile:
