Simplifying network simplification

Stumped by a Problem? Try Coding Less

Running into challenging situations or problems is a fact of life in software development. From complex coding constructs to tricky phantom bugs, programmers spend many hours traversing their own minds in search of the right answer. At times the problem seems obvious, while on other occasions, it seems to hide behind a subtle impenetrable veil. Sometimes on these occasions, without provocation, the solution arrives like a rushing tidal wave. Why is this?

Can Scrumban Work?

Scrum and Kanban lead to the evolution of Scrumban. Combine the two approaches and receive a sum that is larger than its parts. When implementing Kanban it stipulates to "respect the current process, roles, responsibilities, and titles."

The big question is, "Can these two ideas coexist?"
