Subject: [xpportland] XPDX Wednesday March 18th: Ping Pong Pairing
Pair Programming has many benefits for a team above and beyond coding,
yet it's still one of the hardest XP practices to get into. Ping Pong
pairing is a lot of fun and is my favourite way to pair. It has a
game-like style that instils good pairing and TDD practices. So come
along to the next XPDX meeting to try it out. It doesn't matter if
you've been pairing for years or want to try it for the first time. This
will be a chance to learn from each other. We'll spend a little time
getting to know the mechanics of Ping Pong pairing, do a brief
demonstration, and then all pair up for over an hour of practice.
Absolutely positively bring a laptop with you. We'll be using Java,
JUnit, and Eclipse. A big time saver will be to ensure that you have the
Java *SDK* installed beforehand.
>>> Thanks to VersionOne there'll be pizza for thirty! <<<
Be there at 6:30pm for the pizza. We'll start at 7pm. At 9pm we'll move
on to a local bar.
