Görel Hedin, Lars Bendix, Boris Magnusson:
in proceedings of the 4th International Conference on eXtreme Programming and Agile Process in Software Engineering, Genova, Italy, May 25-29, 2003.
We have developed a tandem of undergraduate courses for teaching XP and coaching of XP teams. This paper focuses on the coaching course and the coaching practices we have developed.
The tandem of courses enables us to give a challenging and interesting course for the coaches, and, at the same time, allows us to afford on-site coaches for the younger students, providing them with a high quality environment for learning XP. We also describe our experiences from the first instance of the courses and how we have tackled the boot-strapping problem.
