Code Project Virtual Tech Summit Session

If you missed the premiere of one of our virtual tech summits you'll still be able to view these sessions. This video originally premiered in our Agile Development Summit February 23, 2011.

Abstract

How can two programmers at one computer be more productive than two programmers separately? Everybody knows that the limiting factor in software developer productivity is how many characters per minute are typed on the keyboard - isn't it? In this session, Steve introduces the practice of pair programming, describes some pros and cons of its usage by agile teams, and demonstrates some specific techniques that can make it very effective for those new to the practice.
