intro story Coast / Estuary

Coast / Estuary

Coastal systems are among the most dynamic physical systems on earth and are subject to a large variety of forces. The morphodynamic changes occurring to coastlines worldwide are of great interest and importance. These changes occur as a result of the erosion of sediments, its subsequent transport as bed load or suspended load, and eventual deposition. 
Estuaries are partly enclosed water bodies that have an open connection to the coast. Estuaries generally have one or more branching channels, intertidal mudflats and/or salt marshes. Intertidal areas are of high ecological importance and trap sediments (sands, silts, clays and organic matter).
Within the Delft3D modelling package a large variation of coastal and estuarine physical and chemical processes can be simulated. These include waves, tidal propagation, wind- or wave-induced water level setup, flow induced by salinity or temperature gradients, sand and mud transport, water quality and changing bathymetry (morphology). Delft3D can also be used operationally e.g. storm, surge and algal bloom forecasting. 
On this discussion page you can post questions, research discussions or just share your experience about modelling coastal and/or estuarine systems with Delft3D FM.

Lots of things to consider in Sprint

Lots of things to consider in SprintLots of things to consider
  • Is there a time-critical to it? If GDPR is approaching and your product handles customer data it needs to be done before the law kicks in.
  • Is there a severity criticality to it? If your payments integration is charging double the amount, we first need to get that sorted out.  Before more and more customers start clamoring for refunds.
  • Is there a time dimension involved? We had promised a feature to customer last month and somehow it's still in the backlog. Especially in a B2B scenario, it would be important to adhere to dates because the customer would have lined up other business activities like marketing based on the previously agreed-upon dates.
  • How important is the new requirement for our use case? Maybe we are Facebook and we need to stop all else that we are doing and just do social networking.  If it is a product defining/redefining/business pivot decision from which the new requirement is driven, it makes sense to course-correct immediately.
  • What are the business benefits of doing it immediately? What will I need to postpone doing if I do this immediately? What is the business impact of that postponement? Do the business benefits of doing the change immediately vs what we lose by postponement work out in our favor?
  • Is the feature in the new requirement a must-have for our product that we missed? Are we working on some nice-to-haves that we can look into later? Is the new requirement a mind-boggling feature that we should prioritize over nice-to-haves?
  • Is it even possible to be picked in this Sprint? Does the new requirement need a lengthy setup that it will take beyond this Sprint?
I am also wary of adding members to the development team to get more work done. We literally treat our developers like cattle "Hurr, Hutt". As if they have no thoughts, no freedom. We just "hurr, Hutt" them as it pleases. It just doesn't work. A new joiner will take time to assimilate into the team. He/She will need time to understand the product architecture. By the time all that happens, the Sprint will be over. No logic at all. We treat software development as if it's similar adding one more person to man the call center to handle a spike of incoming calls. But software development is fundamentally different. <!--td {border: 1px solid #ccc;}br {mso-data-placement:same-cell;}-->Devops Online Training

The Scrum Master, item proprietor, and advancement group all take an interest. Others may go to on uncommon events when the item proprietor and group both concur it's proper. For instance, if the coming run will incorporate creating usefulness best clarified by a topic master (who isn't the item proprietor), it tends to be helpful to have that individual join in. As a rule, nonetheless, that sort of conversation is best led outside the genuine arranging meeting.
