Pair Programming (mini) Tour in Brazil

Hopefully it will be an interesting way to learn new tricks.

Unfortunately I’ll have only three days to accomplish my goal. The good news is that it took less than a day to be contacted by more companies that I’ll be able to visit, which shows I’m not the only one thinking this can be a very good experience.
