Here they called it "salary". Work 80 hours and get paid for 40.
A good Waterfall approach gets 4x more done than any version of Agile - on a complex project that can be understood well enough to design before most coding. Agile is good for reporting and projects where a client just wants to throw money to "get somewhere" but really don't know what they want.
Agile is not a development method. It's a client control method. The client (business) sees something tangible and imagines that they can follow along and have some control. It's mostly an illusion, as is most management.
The actual development methods to make Agile successful (at least from a technical perspective) are Regression Testing and Code Refactoring. Most Agile projects that fail are because of one or both of those areas failed.
As for FDD... standard on the east coast USA and many other parts of the world. It works for unthinking peons but utterly fails for jobs that require imagination.
he means "make panicked decisions retarding business formation while entrenching early adopters".
More likely they'll be planned and vetted by the corporations that stack the board with their employees... and, yes, entrenching them.
That is the best proof I've seen in this discussion.
Summary for the unwashed masses: Tim Cook is a big fat liar!
Yep, what AT&T brought up is already solved.
What they are really asking for is another billing mechanism to charge people more for their traffic to be higher priority... or at least not choked out to death-by-dropped-packets.
Don't forget the 2.5m crimes avoided through firearm self defense each year.
Gotta have both sides to make an accurate measurement.
Besides, a tool is a tool. Car, kitchen knife, chainsaw... each is a great tool but also constant injury and death.
Most countries are just sneakier - they have government officials embedded in "private" corporations. France and China come to mind. Other countries indirectly support their home grown monopolies through technicalities.
The point of trade is that another country can do something better/faster/cheaper. If you can't compete then don't compete - don't invent some imaginary barriers then use lots of logic fallacies to defend it.
And that's the problem with green energy (other than hydro) - production is lowest when consumption is highest. What are they going to do, use all those batteries to store electricity? Does that mean if I buy an electric car I'm paying premium prices for a used battery with limited life?
I haven't performed the calculations behind it but I have a sneaking suspicion that it's cheaper than nuclear power, once you factor in the long-term nuclear waste storage costs that are paid by the taxpayer.
I've done the calcs. Hydropower is 1/4 the cost, all known factors included. Nothing beats it.
Internationally? Whenever I travel international from the USA, I typically only see 1 airline offering the flight. But I digress... I'm speaking directly about USA national flights. I've made around 300 round trips in the last 15 years and watched business flights go from very nice to dismal.
If you're speaking about european or asian flights then those have overcapacity due to massive government subsidies overbuilding the fleets, not from capitalism.
Most seats no longer have enough room to open a laptop.
As a frequent flier and 6 ft tall, I can attest that airline seats have gotten to the point of cause widespread pain and suffering, including physical injury. There is not nearly enough competition in the airline industry to lead to improvements driven from capitalism. This is unfortunately the time where government needs to step in for the general well being of society.
It could be that the FAA needs to get off it's ass and write some updated regulations instead of turning law abiding citizens into criminals.
Self absorbed, amoral, and rampantly driven... but he's no moron.
Current and future education is all about multidisciplinary integration. Even right now you need 2 bachelors or a master's degree to get anywhere, then ongoing learning spans many disciplines. As for history, how it is currently taught is worthless. Dates and names are irrelevant. The real value - Why and How - is not taught in any 100 level class.
Quality matters. The CS graduates from my school could design a clean OS, much less API. To bad that quality doesn't matter much to management.
