Pair Programming has been shown to increase communication and teamwork skills and to provide better code. The aim of this work is to show the efficacy of Pair Programming in transferring knowledge and skills over an environment where people met only occasionally. In a quasi experiment, we find that Pair Programming is effective in sharing knowledge among 15 students who met once a week for a half day, and did their internship individually or in couple for the remaining 4 half days.
