As mentioned in another post, I've started to run live pair programming events. Scheduling one take quite some work. Let me describe it here so maybe I can think of ways to reduce the overhead.
Find the pair programming partner.
I still have to work a lot on finding a diverse set of partners.
In either case it needs some email exchanges to get someone on board. I hope it will be easier once (and if) the videos get some traction.
Find a time slot that's good for both of us.
This too requires a few back-and-forth emails. It is much easier if it is a recurring partner and now I even started to schedule more than one event with the same person. This certainly make things easier.
At the beginning I wanted to have a time slot that's also good for any potential audience, but it seems there are a lot more people watching the video recording than the live session so now my main concern is to make it convenient for the two of us.
Zoom, web page, calendar
The items that most likely can be automated.
That's a lot of other can of worms. Where really should I announce this?
