Before you Get Started
Before you start the tutorial, please make sure you do the following:
- Make sure you have a partner. We will be pair programming today! Pair programming is a method of programming in which two people work together at one keyboard. One person, "the driver", types at the keyboard. The other person, "the observer" (or "navigator") reviews each line of code as it is typed, checking for errors and thinking about the overall design. For more information, see: What is pair programming?
- Once you have a partner, choose one computer to use for the training. It will make things easier to build off the code you're writing together.
- Decide who will be the driver and who will be the navigator for the first chunk of work.
- Make sure to talk! Talk a lot!!!
- Switch roles often — at least every half hour.
- Go to: http://www.stackstarter.io/spin and enter the provided spin code for today.
- Ok, now you can get started with the tutorial!
