XAF – Distributed Pair Programming and Fast Prototyping

Using XAF recently reminded me of my Smalltalk days in the early ‘90s, more on why that was at the end of the post, but for now let’s talk about pair programming. You know about pair programming right? It’s a practice in eXtreme Programming whereby two programmers sit at the same keyboard and work on the same programming task. One concentrates on the strategic purpose of the task, the other (normally the ‘driver’) concentrates on the tactical aspects of getting the task done. Working this way, the theory goes, both together can be more productive than two programmers working separately and, to be fair, this is generally true.
