How about a Game of Ping-Pong at Work?
That's ping pong programming of course. It's a combination of Test Driven Development and Pair Programming. The 1st developer writes a test and then passes the keyboard to the second developer who writes enough code to make the test pass and then writes a second test and passes the keyboard back to the 1st programmer who in turn writes enough code to make the second test pass and then writes a third test and so on. This keeps both developers involved and focused. What do you think? Ready to give it a try?
