Pair programming

Connecting each event attendee to another person at an event so that they might work together in some way. This is typically done prior to the event, so folks have a chance to connect with their partner. This provides peer support for first-time event participants, and may reduce attrition in technical workshops where troubleshooting support can be helpful. 

AKA: Peer mentorship, Accountability buddies
