Pair Programming

  • Jeff Dalton
Chapter

Abstract

Pair programming is a software development technique in which two developers work together to complete a coding task. They generally work at one workstation with one programmer being the “driver” and the other being the “navigator.” The navigator reviews code as the driver is entering it, performing a sort of real-time code review. While this typically appears increases the cost of programing, the reward of increased code quality far exceeds the investment in time and effort.
