would you care to explain what Trump's native language is
It sounds like bollocks to me

I really like my Priv and am pretty hacked off about this news. The overheating thing was sorted out a while ago and I love the combination large screen and keyboard.
Plan to carry on using it until it finally dies but won't be purchasing another BB after this. If you can't be arsed to carry on supporting your products then don't expect anyone to buy them.
D'Amore, however, presents precisely no evidence to back up his supposedly scientific assertions. Firing him was a bit harsh but don't pretend that this was a well researched paper. For all the apparent logic the premises of arguments are worthless
"What can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence."
Sounds as if they weren't actually doing Agile at all but merely spouting the management bullshit that can surround it.
The projects I have been a part of that did use Agile were all about delivering working software first and foremost. From what i can remember that is pretty much top priority in the original manifesto.
"And you forget the only thing that matters: Germany needs to export to the UK. Their auto industry will be rioting if the EU insists on tariffs."
You're flat wrong by the way. Politics will trump economics - the EU will not give us tariff free access unless we accept the four freedoms and that is that. They cannot give us a special deal as it will encourage others trying it on.
I have an open mind about this.
Where I work we have a large collection of web applications running on a portal server and deliver new stuff monthly using agile and continuous deployments and it works pretty well. Probably the most productive I have been in twenty years and our business bods are pretty pleased with what we do.
One of our management people is muttering about DevOps (largely because our ops team aren't particularly good) but I have yet to hear anything about how this approach will help us be more productive, it appears to be all about architecture rather than actually churning our working new stuff (which is what the business side are actually interested in).
Does anyone here have any practical answers?
I have read papers that say that data (which, after all, is the heart of most applications) is difficult without actually explaining how this difficulty is overcome.
Pretty obvious that one:
Trump and Putin have been acquaintences for a while.
Trump is rowing back on the US's NATO article 5 commitments (collective defence).
Trump thinks Russia didn't invade eastern Ukraine (even though they admitted it).
Trump is, by nature, an isolationst.
All this would give Russia a free hand in foreign policy to carry on its military adventurism unchecked by the US. Trump's comments on article 5 could potentially leave the Baltic states vulnerable to an invasion similar to Ukraine
Got a 3DTV a few years ago by accident purely as it was at a huge discount (and a bloody good plasma screen as well).
Have watched a fair few 3D movies on it and only two have ever worked well (even Gravity was so-so). This two were TT Closer to the edge because the on bike 3D sequences are terrifying and it really brings home how scary the TT course is. The other was Dredd purely for the 3D blood flying everywhere in balletic slomo.
Disagree completely - I have worked in three places that did Agile well and it worked very well indeed. As far as I can tell the main thrust of the article is creect in that you really need everyone (especially the business sponsors) to buy into it too. If they don't understand the process then you might as well not bother..
There, indeed, are - I worked for one.
I am pretty sure their two main cluster incarnations have been since 1990 (I recall rewriting some ancient C++ code that run there where the previous edit had been done in 1992 and this was five years ago).
They also did a full data centre move, mainframes and all, in a weekend which was pretty bloody impressive.
OpenVMS really is spectacularly resilient, the only downside (apart from debugging which was hideously slow) was the boxes puny network cards.
