Hi 

As per the the Scrum Guide, Developers are accountable for - Holding each other accountable as professionals. Can someone please explain the meaning and idea behind this? I tried to with multiple sources but didn't find any explanation for this.

The role is Developers, plural, for a reason. They share a joint accountability for their commitments and so if things go amiss there can be no shifting of blame or finger-pointing.

Holding each other accountable also encourages mutual respect and collaborative focus.
