Example text

Pair programming is a style of programming in which two programmers work side-by-side at one computer, continuously collaborating on the same design, algorithm, code, or test [29]. Pair programming has been practiced sporadically for decades [29]; however, the emergence of agile methodologies and Extreme Programming [4] has recently popularized the pair programming practice. Pair programming has been shown to have many of the benefits of reviews while also eliminating the programmer’s distaste for reviews so that at least one form of review is actually performed.

Finding Defects with a Personal Review When you do a personal review, it is best if you print out the work you will be reviewing, such as a requirements document, a design document, code, or a test plan. Then, methodically, step through your work and through the checklist, trying to identify any possible errors. The objective of a personal review is to find and fix as many defects as possible before you implement, inspect, or test the design and/or the program. Research has shown that with practice you can remove between 50%-80% of your defects by doing a thorough personal review [18].
