Pair Programming: Back to the Basics

Pair Programming is a highly recommended but seldom utilized agile development practice. Primarily originating and associated with Extreme Programming, Pair Programming is often misunderstood and therefore left by the way side when agile teams get going with development. I want to go back to the basics of pair programming and show why it should be a practice every team employs. In Design Studio and Senior Design, we manage nearly 40 projects with more than 200 student team members combined. Pair Programming can greatly impact these students’ careers in software development once they have realized its power and taken advantage of its benefits. Let’s bring it back down to the basics to remind you of this great opportunity.
