Ogryzek takes an introspective look into cross-team pairing in a technology focused work environment, encouraging developers to pair with other developers and even members of QA or Product Management to ensure a higher quality of code craftsmanship, product understanding, and business value. Further, he suggests technology workers communicate openings available on their teams to peers and former colleagues with whom they have enjoyed collaborating.
