Jugalbandi (literal meaning “entwined twins”) is a Hindi term used in the context of Indian classical music. A jugalbandi is a duet performance of two solo musicians.
The expertise of the musicians might be different. One might be a percussionist, the other a singer. One might play the flute, the other a sitar. But in a jugalbandi, they sync up to provide a mesmerizing duet.
So, how can jugalbandi happen in the coding world?
Software artisans Nitish Rathi and Dhaval Dalal took a simple problem and solved it using different coding languages (“instruments”). Along the way, they incrementally introduced and incorporated some fundamental concepts (“melodies”) of software engineering.
As the day progressed, participants played along to their tune, playing each melody with many instruments… 🙂
