Parallel Development | Glossary

Definition:

Parallel development occurs when there is a need for separate development paths to diverge from a common starting point so that there is no longer a single “latest and greatest” version.  Such characteristics determine how the object version is evaluated during an update. The properties that distinguish parallel object versions from each other are called parallel development properties.

Pair Programming

Definition 

Pair Programming is an Agile Software development technique, where programming is done in pairs. The first person writes the code of the software, while the second person who plays the role of an observer, checks and verifies the lines of source code. The pair keep switching roles to facilitate the development process.
