It's a development methodology. Proponents claim it it produces rapid, high-quality results which meet the customers needs better.

1) Developers work in pairs. Typically one is actually writing code, while the other is checking references, keeping track of variable names, watching for mistakes, etc. The developers switch places every so often.

Think of all the things that make you stop typing--you have to go read a man page, you forgot what name you gave to a function, or you're not sure the last ten lines of code make sense. The second programmer helps with that stuff so the one typing can stay focused.

2) The customer (i.e. the people who specify requirements) have someone onsite at all times to make decisions about details. Ideally this person is in the same room as the programmers.

3) The software release cycle is only 2-3 weeks long. Every cycle starts with the customer and the developers deciding what changes to make this cycle.
