Leading Software Engineer | Co-founder @ Failure-Driven
Michael Milewski is a developer keen on the people side of things. He loves pairing, and in particular with people new to writing software.
He especially likes driving software out with tests and directing the evolution of the design.
In his spare time he does a bit of running, camping and watching any one of his 4 kids excel above anything he ever managed to achieve.

Selena and Michael will take you on a roller coaster journey of how to get started and get the most out of pair programming. Live on stage they will switch from conversational overview straight into acting out various highs, lows, do’s and don’ts of pair-programming collaboration. Laughs and tears are guaranteed as the audience connect on the difficulties and ultimately the rewards that can be reaped from teamwork through effective pairing.
Pair-programming, 2 developers writing code collaboratively with 2 keyboards and 1 computer, might feel weird, foreign, or impossible. With the insights from this talk you will take your pairing to a new level.
Target is to engage audience to want to try pairing with their co-developers immediately!
