Have you ever been pairing with someone and they have an idea so they take the keyboard from you to show you how something is done?

It puts the right people in the right roles when pairing to ensure full engagement from all parties, build trust, and promote better collaboration. Watch the video below to see DZone's John Esposito talk with Maaret and Llewellyn at Agile2016 about their new pairing technique.
