Strengthening the Case for Pair Programming
July/August 2000 (vol. 17 no. 4)
pp. 19-25
The software industry has practiced pair programming--two programmers working side by side at one computer on the same problem--for years. But people who haven't tried it often reject the idea as a waste of resources. The authors demonstrate that pair programming yields better software products in less time--and happier, more confident programmers. Their supportive evidence comes from professional programmers and an experiment with university students.
Index Terms:
