Single, Double or Triple Equal?

Someone asked me about this today so I thought I would share it with the guild. Most C# developers are familiar with the single vs double equals but in JavaScript what is the triple equals. Well it turns out the triple equal takes variable type into account. So 1 is not equal to '1' if you use the triple equal.

I did some searching and found an article on devx that explains it perfectly with an example. I have placed the link below:

Web Farms vs Web Gardens

A friend of mine asked me this question today so I thought I would post the response on the guild in case others were wondering.

Web gardens are different from Web farms. A Web garden is configured on a single server by specifying multiple worker processes for an application pool. Web farms use multiple servers for a Web site.

Agile is not working? Scrum neither? Maybe you need to try Ad Hoc What's Hot

I hear a lot of complaints about Agile and Scrum, but in the next breath as they
explain how they are doing it. I realize that they are not really doing Agile or Scrum.
This article explains some of the scrumbuts that are causing you to come to this conclusion.

This brings back the idea of the new methodology called Ad Hoc What's Hot. This methodology allows you to use your existing methodology for most projects that are large or require lots of external connections or integrations. For the other projects you can use agile or scrum.

Although many hard core agile developers would argue that its all or nothing. Sometimes its more efficient for the project not to use agile either due to current environment, training, or other factors.

If you would like more information on this new methodology please email Susan Fischer at
