Remote Pair Programming Session

Online

To secure your spot, and receive more informational material please be sure to RSVP on our website here: https://codesmith.io/coding-events/remote-pair-programming-session/1530

Join the Codesmith community remotely for an online pair programming session! We'll start the session with an overview of what pair programming is and how to focus on improving your technical communication in the session.

Pair programming is central to Codesmith's learning style. If you're looking to prepare for our programs, this session is a great chance to focus on the concepts we test for. We'll also have a mentor available to help you through blocks you may run into! The way we conduct pair programming involves two programmers working together with 1 workstation. One person is the driver, writing the code, and one person is the navigator, talking through the logic.

Note: You will need a functioning camera and microphone to participate. Please join early as you will be paired with a partner in the very beginning of the workshop.

Price: Always free!
