Abstract:
Inspired by research on the role of affect in marital interactions, the authors examined whether affective interaction dynamics occurring within a 5-minute slice can predict pair programming performance. In a laboratory experiment with professional programmers, Group Hedonic Balance, a measure of the balance between positive and negative expressed affect, accounted for up to 35% of the variance in not only subjective but also objective pair programming performance. Implications include a new set of methods to study pair programming interactions and recommendations to improve pair programming performance.

Abstract:
This paper demonstrates how methods to study affective dynamics of marital interactions can be applied to investigate the performance of pair programming interactions. As a proof of concept for our perspective, we re-investigated a dataset that was originally collected during a study on pair programming from a marital interaction perspective. We found that distinctions that are thought to be critical to describe the quality of couples interactions can also be drawn for pair programming interactions. Overall we conclude that methods and perspectives from the area of marital interactions can provide powerful insights in exploring the still unanswered question as to when and why pair programming works. Recommendations for further research are provided.
