Agile的Scrum項目管理

十年前開始流行的的Project Management Professional (PMP) 和 PRINCE2 項目管理認證,現時有新的競爭者叫 Certified Scrum Master (CSM)認證,現已開始越來越多人留意了。

Scrum是一種新的項目管理的架構,通常為Agile (敏捷)方式的開發工具,而且通常用於軟件開發項目上。Agile/Scrum能夠處理複雜問題,將它們分拆,及優先考慮到單獨的任務中,然後將這些任務委託給最適合解決每個任務的專門團隊成員,所以它被認為較有效率。

HK-Shenzhen tech park in Lok Ma Chau Loop

Charles Mok e-Bulletin

The government announced this week that it will partner with Shenzhen to develop Lok Ma Chau loop into a innovation and technology park. While I agree that more land supply for R&D is positive, given the huge investment in infrastructure that our taxpayers will pay for, we have the responsibility to ask the right questions to make sure Hong Kong will get value for the deal and generate positive impact, not rely on empty promises — granting entry permit waiver for “verified” Shenzhen workers, criteria and requirements to the tenants in the park, strategic role that this massive project carries in relation to other planned R&D land use at new development areas in the New Territories.

Refresh to display a web page using Python

Python Program Example 1.

If you’re going to need a refresh on the same tab, you’ll need selenium webdriver. After installing selenium using pip, you can use the following code:

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys
import time
driver = webdriver.Firefox()
driver.get("http://www.python.org")
while True:
   time.sleep(10)
   driver.refresh()

If you are browsing a static page, you can pass a parameter in it and run, for example passing "pycon" to search as below script:

from selenium import webdriver
from selenium.webdriver.common.keys import Keys
driver = webdriver.Firefox()
driver.get("http://www.python.org")
assert "Python" in driver.title
elem = driver.find_element_by_name("q")
elem.clear()
elem.send_keys("pycon")
elem.send_keys(Keys.RETURN)
assert "No results found." not in driver.page_source
driver.close()

What is "China Manufacturing 2025" ?


Industry 4.0是实体物理世界与虚拟网络世界融合的时代。但德国业界对Industry 4.0的响应者却不多,原因之一是所谓的虚拟网络-实体物理系统(Cyber-Physical System,CPS)融合的主要思想,美国早在若干年前就已提出。未来 10 年,基于信息物理系统(Cyber-PhysicalSystem,CPS)的智能化,将使人类步入以智能制造为主导的第四次工业革命。产品全生命周期、全制造流程数字化以及基于信息通信技术的模块集成,将形成一种高度灵活、个性化、数字化的产品与服务新生产模式。

What is Industry 4.0 ?

Industrial Applications« BACK TO INDUSTRIAL APPLICATIONS
Industry 4.0 – What’s That About?
By John Donovan for Mouser Electronics

First we had inflection points; then paradigm shifts were all the rage. Now we are hearing about a new Industrial Revolution – Industry 4.0. According to its proponents it is a new method of production that is creating a fourth Industrial Revolution. Really? What’s that about?

To back up a bit – actually about 250 years – James Watt’s improvements to the Newcomen steam engine in the late 18th century kick started the First Industrial Revolution. Watt did not invent the steam engine, but his numerous innovations increased the productivity of the textile industry by three orders of magnitude. Mechanized factories had arrived.
