          Abstract

          Objective: Comparison of program defects caused by programmer pairs and solo developers.

          Design: Analysis of programs developed during two counter balanced experiments.

          Setting: Programming lab at University.

          Experimental Units: 42 programs developed by computer science students participating in an extreme programming lab course.

          Main Outcome Measures: Programmer pairs make as many algorithmic mistakes but fewer expression mistakes than solo programmers.

          Results: The second result is significant on the 5 percent level.

          Conclusions: For simple problems, pair programming seems to lead to fewer mistakes than solo programming.
