Try pair programming! I've never had an official pair programming session, but I'll be damned if my best code and quickest solutions didn't come from having a bitch session with my coworker. Just having to talk it out or having that second set of eyes can work wonders. Plus you have a built-in de-stressing outlet to help you sleep at night.

    This is important and might not make it fun for everyone, but you will learn a lot from it.

    Tried and hated it. Talk distracts from thinking and reliably prevents zoning in.

    @Fast-Nop yeah I really have to be in the right mood. If I'm in the zone, pair programming sucks. If I'm not, it can help.

    I’ve never been able to talk to anyone in person about programming besides when I was in college. I’m a lone dev :’(

    Really sucks sometimes when I’m trying to debug issues and I don’t have a person to help debug with.
