Pair programming refers to two programmers sharing and operating in one workstation. This workstation comprises a screen, but two keyboards and two mice. One of the programmes at the keyboard is known as the driver, and their role is to write codes. The other programmer is the navigator or observer who checks the codes as they are typed in. They usually sit together on one code and talk about it and solve the problem at hand.
Several organisations have adopted this practice. It is essential to look at the benefits and shortcomings that emanate from adopting pair programming.
There is a risk of no benefit if the programmers are not actively participating all through a paired session. It takes time to evaluate the programmers who can work well together. If programmers do not have a common understanding, they will not be productive. There is an aspect of slowdown especially compared to a case where one programmer has mastered coding and can deliver perfect work in a short period.
Pair programming is a beneficial way of building teamwork as well as ensuring productivity in code generation. It is also the best method for training and equipping new employees with the required coding skills and knowledge.
