Hi,

I m interested in practicing pair programming, either in a project which is already been done or in my own project inviting some guest. My project is Free Software

Somebody knows if there is any community which is dedicated to this?

Regards,
Isaac

A couple of pieces of advice:

1. Try to find someone with whom you can actually get together physically, at the same location. Sure, you can do it virtually with collaboration software that allows you to share a screen but being physically in the same room is the traditional and probably the best way to do pair programming.

2. Know what pair programming is about. There is so much to pair programming effectively than most books/articles about it can convey. The closest approximation I've read is the Bowling Game session between Uncle Bob Martin and Bob Koss - note that this PP episode is filled with design and refactoring discussions and that's really how you get the most of PP. I have tried this same exercise with a number of different people and have come up with different results each time.

I live in Alicante (Spain) and find someone here to do that is difficult I think that my only chance is to do it online.

Is there any resource available to ask for partner?

Have you tried looking for a Java User Group in your area? Or extreme programming interest group or Agile Development interest group?
