Pair Programming Illuminated
Author: Laurie Williams and Robert Kessler
Pair programming is a simple, straightforward concept. Two programmers work side-by-side at one computer, continuously collaborating on the same design, algorithm, code, and test. It produces a higher quality of code in about half the time than that produced by the summation of their solitary efforts. However, nothing is simple where people and personalities are involved–especially people who are accustomed to working alone. The leap to pair programming for a variety of software development projects is one that yields many benefits. However, it is also one that requires careful thought and planning.
Evan’s Review: This book does a great job of showing how something that seems so easy is actually really hard and then makes it easy again.
