DevNexus: I've Pair Programmed for 27,000 Hours, Ask Me Anything!

I thought it was interesting to hear the different questions and perspectives people had on peer programming. We had a fair audience of about 40-50 people. So it wasn't stale or in lack of attention. I'm in the habit of taking notes during our meetings from work, so I just jotted down a few things while in the conference.
