i want to learn. read books of kent beck i am in the feeling that pair 
programming can bring you forward, so i thought it would be the best way for 
me to learn from experienced smalltalkers. i don't know anybody who is an

in fact i would have a lot of questions and a bit of unfinished code, but i 
think it is not worth to look over it.
