Hi,
I worked using Waterfall, RUP and Scrum methodologies. I find that in a Scrum methodology it is very easy for architecture work to be:

1. Never done
2. Shared amongst senior developers on the team

The problem is that there is not enough emphasis on architectural work in the Scrum methodology and since most organisations who are claiming to be Agile are using Scrum it means that this work is not given the important it is.

What are you thoughts on this?

Hi,
Question for Scala authors. One thing I think Scala needs is something like Josh Bloch's "Effective Java" where there is a detailed lists of best practises - not just how to program. Do any of your books cover best practises?

Hi Javier,
Congratulations on your new book. Do you cover much about the fork / join framework introduced in Java 7?
Many thanks
Do you think that Spring can in any way at all make Java architectures make better use of multi core CPUs?

Hi Allen,
Does your book discuss how Python differs from other dynamic languages? Or what special features it has.
Thanks

Hi,
I am looking for a performance tool to test a live web site.

Ideally I want where:

1. I can configure users to be coming in from different regions.
2. I can configure a multiple number of users.
3. Get all the usual page response time etc.
4. Configure the tooling to click specific buttons.
5. The tool to run as a SAAS and make it easy for me to get results

Any tips?

Thanks.

Hi Zak, Anne,
With HTML5, CSS3, and javascript libraries such as jquery now making it very possible to a rich web layer what do you see as the future of web frameworks such as:
1. Struts
2. JSF
3. Spring MVC

Do we even need them?

Does your book cover this question?

Thanks.
Hi Anthony Briggs & Steve Holden,
In python there are many ways to do things. There can be ways that people coming from another programming language take because they are used to it and then a "pythonic" way - a way that some rich feature of the python language provides to make the same objective achievable in a very elegant way.

Does this book provide many python tips to make your code more pythonic?

I'm guessing you've already read Google's Spreadsheet docs. Beyond taht, I think you are going to have to read the Python code. The good thing is Python isn't compiled so you have the code by definition.


Thanks Jeanne. Yeah I read that. It'smore tutorials.

Ok, I finally found some API style doc.

For example SpreadsheetService is here...

Hi,
Using google's python API's. I have to read the spreadsheet as a cellsfeed because it's too complex to read a listfeed. Google recommend to use either a cells feed or a list feed but to not mix the two. However, I need to delete rows based on values in a cell in a row. What's the suggested way to do this?

Thanks.

Hi,
Sorry simple question. New to Python from a Java background.

In Java I could just check an objects Javadoc API to see what I could do with in it. I am using Google's spreadsheet python library. There's lots of useful objects but how or where do I check to see what I can do with say a GetCellsFeed? What APIs can I call on it? Similarly for every entry in a Cells feed?

Thanks

Hi,
LinkedIN has a section where you can put your certifications. However, sometimes people put a major certification such as the architects certification (or PMP) in more than one place on their linkedin. For example, they might have their "professional headline" as: Software Engineer, Certfied Java Architect.

Just wondering what most people who have the certification do?

Thanks

Mods - move to careers section if you think more appropriae.
