Re: Problems setting up Drupal

Nicholas, I haven't seen any discussion here on Drupal or similar tools, so I'm not sure if it's the right forum for your question.

Re: Tools for creating architect diagrams?

I've used dia in the past and found it pretty good (did not use it for architect diagrams though).

I have also used modelio, which is a java-based diagramming program and found it very good.

Re: Which PM Certification?

I wouldn't bother with this agile stuff. For my money, the PMP certification from PMI is the only one worth anything. Why do you think they are totally unrelated? Good PM is good PM, no matter the approach used! There is actually a series of interesting articles that you may want to take a look at,...

Re: Agile Triangle, what is it?

Re: Agile, Lean, Kanban, XP, Scrum,...

Doing eXtreme Programming (XP) is probably the easier one and should be adopted for many software development projects. There are a lot of techniques in XP that make it very useful for software.

Blarson, good descriptions, although in real life, the Architect may also serve other roles on a project.
