Iteration (5-15 minutes)

  • Find a different workstation and pair up with a different partner
  • On the sound of the bell swap driver of the keyboard
  • On the sound of the horn, make all your tests pass - go GREEN
  • When you are at green write down the number of tests currently passing and the time it took to go green since the horn sounded on your station timesheet
  • Hand in your timesheet to Game Master
  • Put your GREEN Cover over your workstation
  • Wait for further instructions

Retrospective (<5 minutes)

  • Dialogue (brainstorming, gather data, <2 minutes)
  • Discussion (argue, generate insights, <2 minutes)
  • Decision (decide what to do, reach concensus, <1 minute)

Rules of the game

  • You must never work alone! Always communicate with your programming partners.
  • You must follow a proper test-driven development cycle:
    1. Add a failing unittest
    2. Write code until the unittest succeeds
    3. Refactor code
    4. Goto step 1
  • You must never transfer code digitally between the work stations
  • You are not allowed to "cheat" - the aim of the game is to learn and have fun
