Agile Project Management For Dummies
Agile Project Management For Dummies

Edition: Paperback
Price: CDN$ 19.42

4.0 out of 5 stars Good book for Agile fundamentals, March 10 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The way it's written, I wouldn't call it "for dummies". It is however quite comprehensive.

This will take you from 0 to 60 very quickly i.e. gets you up the learning curve fast

Great if you want to apply Agile in a software development environment. Not so good if you want to learn about Agile and want to apply the methodology in a non-software environment

Then again, should you be using Agile methodology in a non-software development environment?!

I bought the book for additional insight and find it very useful. A bit disjointed in some chapters but overall, I would recommend it for anyone who wants to learn or refresh their knowledge about Agile

3.0 out of 5 stars More like skin than case, March 10 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Nice product based on overall quality and graphic but I wouldn't call it a case. It's more like a tough skin which will protect from basic everyday use and light bumps. I don't think this would protect very well if the phone was dropped onto a hard floor. If that's what you want look for a Spiegen product which I'm using for another phone. Now that's what I would call a case

Overall though this product should be called a phone cover and for that it does a good job

5.0 out of 5 stars Does more than I expected, Feb. 20 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had tried basic foam rollers at the gym. Then I tried this product. What a difference!! It's obviously been manufactured from good quality materials. I didn't know how the little "spikes" would hold up. Well, no worries they're perfect. The rippled surface does a better job in applying multiple points of pressure which for me works way better than a flat surface

The pvc core provides the overall structural integrity. The surface materials are resilient yet have cushioning to them so it doesn't feel like you're rolling on a bed of nails.

I love this product and I'm sure you will too if you know anything about using such a product

For newbies, I would suggest you start with this out of the gate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great quality., Feb. 19 2016
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Bought it for plucking hair and also as a spare at the cottage for pulling out bee stings or slivers from wood etc. as part of the First Aid box. Have used it and it works in all aspects absolutely perfectly and because it's stainless it can be disinfected with alcohol or boiling water without any worry of damage. Highly recommended

2.0 out of 5 stars It's great - when it works!, Nov. 27 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I bought this a couple of years ago and although the sound quality it receives and outputs into my hi-fi system is awesome ( I use the optical out), the bluetooth performance is really sketchy and always has been. (I have a Bose Bluetooth speaker which I use outside so my Bluetooth comparison is objective). With the Nyrius, the range for Bluetooth reception is only about 5 metres at most. With my Bose it's about 20 metres.
!
Also, with the Nyrius, if I am streaming from my laptop I get steady connectivity as long as there is line-of-sight with the receiver. So I have to find a spot for my laptop and leave it there. If I stream from my smartphone, it becomes a real pain! As I move around the room, the connection falters. If I leave the room - the connection completely breaks. Not so with the Bose speaker.

And now, it's not receiving at all! Basically it has crapped-out.

So, is it my transmitting device or the receiving device? I say it's the receiving device. So Nyrius, I'm going to have to replace you! And it won't be with another Nyrius

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect paint extension pole, Nov. 13 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Amazing short extension pole. The price/value of this product is excellent! Perfect diameter steel pole which doesn't bend while using it. This allows for faster and more even and accurate paint application than using the typical paint roller extension pole found in hardware stores.

I highly recommend this product

This review is from: The Sapphires (Audio CD)
Covers of some of the greatest soul sounds written. Really well done and there's no way these sounds won't evoke a groove. Part of the movie soundtrack included a couple of blue grass tracks which I don't like but the CD is well worth it. Great supplement if you've seen the movie and great CD if you havent

5.0 out of 5 stars Great product, great price, great quality, Oct. 1 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I purchased this product expecting it to be mediocre at best (as has been my experience with similar products in the past) but hoping it would live up to its description. I was more than impressed. The protective film goes on perfectly and with the cloth and applicator that comes with the product, it worked out perfectly. No bubbles. And the film itself is of great quality. Crystal clear so that my display is perfect The fit to the i6 face is also excellent so that I can use my fingerprint authentication without any problem. Also it doesn't look like a protective film

Highly recommended

3.0 out of 5 stars Wish the sound track compilation met the greatness of the series, June 29 2015
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
It's 50/50 for me. Some awesome tracks which brought back the excitement of the show. But other tracks go well with the show but not so good for me from a purely listening perspective. If these CD tracks are available individually from a legit download site, buy them that way so that you can listen to them first
