Auctioning on eBay: 2-Hour Remote Pair Programming Session with Kent Beck
Here is Kent’s own description of the offering:
I have spent thousands of hours remotely pair programming with clients. We cover a broad range of topics, from software process to software design to tool development to application development to theory of programming to economics to… well, pretty much anything we want to talk about that’s related to programming. This is your opportunity to pair program with me remotely for two hours. I am fluent with Java, Eclipse, and Smalltalk, but I am used to pairing on unfamiliar technologies. We can work on testing, design, implementation, review, or whatever other technical topic you would like. I have found that the technology for pair programming can be a bottleneck. It’s easy to spend an hour just getting set up. For purposes of this offer we will use VNC for screen sharing (you host the server) and Skype for audio/video. The programming session will take place within two weeks of the sales date at a mutually agreeable date and time. I look forward to programming with the winner of this auction.
