will ask people to pair in couples with different levels of expertise. 
So you will go with someone with better dev skills, remote or in SF.

It's ok if during the more advanced part of the workshop you stay 
watching "over the shoulder" most of the time. This is the best way of 

PS: and I'm in the same situation than you - no worries.  :)
