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

Is there a "method" one can use to determine which approach to use? A lot (most) of the write ups I see about using the agile process are very general and don't give specific deterministic steps to use to come up with what method to use. I was hoping there is such a method out there and someone woul...

Agile, Lean, Kanban, XP, Scrum,...

O.K., all this activity on Agile in this section all of a sudden, has made me take another look and I'll tell you, I'm already totally confused (once again). Agile, Lean, Kanban, XP, Scrum,... alphabet soup. Which one do I use when? How can I determine which one of these methods (and others I didn't...

Re: Possibly wrong subject - Software Development

Although not as against Agile as OscarG is, I have to kind-of agree with him. It was offered to managers and executives as panacea, but it is not. It works in some instances, but doesn't work in others, at least not as evangelized by those who have bought into the cult. OscarG, I spent most of my ti...

Re: IAEA-The Radiological Accident at Tomsk

Helen, the subject line did not say "which" accident the report was analyzing. You may want to edit it and correct it.

Re: Scilab Questions here ??

Well, I don;t want to talk for the board owner/moderator, but posting some questions about scilab would probably be O.K., as long as it doesn't become the main direction of the forum, since the forum appears to be more about energy, nuclear, etc. Now, if they decide to break up the forum into sectio...

Re: Scilab - Cubic spline

Not sure if I understand your question, maybe not, but why can't you just use the splin function that's part of scilab 5.4.0 ?

Scilab 5.4.0

Anyone here working with the scilab 5.4.0 beta? I've installed it and played with it a bit, but I haven't made up my mind yet, if I like it better than 5.3.3 or not. There were some nuisances in 5.3.3 that have been corrected, but I liked the old interface :-(

Mike, lots of documentation is available fro SCILAB, it all depends on what you are looking for :-) I borrowed (couldn't afford it) Gillberto Urroz's book (http://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/1588983048?tag=infoclearicom-20&camp=14573&creative=327641&linkCode=am1&creativeASIN=1588983048&adid=054N...
