One of the discussions centers around a lifecycle of Listen (requirements) -> Test -> Code -> Design. Listen closely to customers while gathering their requirements. Develop test cases. Code the objects (using pair programming).
Does this imply that only the coding is done in pairs ?.

The Agile Alliance is nothing more than a web site ( http://agilealliance.org/ ), a manifesto, and the personal relationships behind it. We don't expect any unified agile whatsit - because we actually think there should be many different processes for different kinds of problems. If you're interested in XP in the Netherlands, I'd post a question to http://groups.yahoo.com/group/extremeprogramming/
