TRIZ - A powerful methodology for creative problem-solving - Creativity techniques from MindTools A Powerful Methodology for Creative Problem Solving How could the idea of these Russian Dolls be applied to retailing? © iStockphoto/BomBeR_irk Projects of all kinds frequently reach a point where as much analysis as possible has been carried out, but the way forward is still unclear. Progress seems blocked, and if the project team is to move forward, it must develop creative solutions to the problems it faces. You'll already know about techniques such as brainstorming , which can help with this sort of situation. TRIZ is a problem solving methodology based on logic, data and research, not intuition. About TRIZ "TRIZ" is the (Russian) acronym for the "Theory of Inventive Problem Solving."

10 Commands Every Linux Newbie Should Know - Part 1 Newbies always think Linux distros are hard or difficult to understand so far as the terminal is concerned. Most of them nearly went back to the operating system they were using previously. But got used to the system since there are people in the community who are always ready to help newbies. Almost every Linux geek today have gone through the same thing and knows how it feels to be in the shoes of a newbie. Since they (advanced users) were also helped by others to get used to things as newbies, the cycle continues. Today am going to show any Linux newbie who is finding things very difficult with the terminal. NOTE: The angle brackets (< and >) in this tutorial are not part of the commands. 1. whoami The command above when separated into individual words reads “Who am I”. enock@enock-pc:~$ whoamienock 2. ls ls is used to list the contents of a directory. 3. mkdir mkdir is used to create a new directory (new folder) ie. mkdir <directoryname> 4. pwd enock@enock-pc:~$ pwd/home/enock 5. mv 6. man

A Quick, Painless Tutorial on the Python Language - StumbleUpon Norman Matloff University of California, Davis June 17, 2008 ©2003-2008, N. Contents What Are Scripting Languages? Languages like C and C++ allow a programmer to write code at a very detailed level which has good execution speed (especially in the case of C). The term scripting language has never been formally defined, but here are the typical characteristics: Used often for system administration, Web programming, text processing, etc. Why Python? The first really popular scripting language was Perl. Advocates of Python, often called pythonistas, say that Python is so clear and so enjoyable to write in that one should use Python for all of one's programming work, not just for scripting work. Background Needed Anyone with even a bit of programming experience should find the material through Section 8 to be quite accessible. The material beginning with Section 10 will feel quite comfortable to anyone with background in an object-oriented programming (OOP) language such as C++ or Java. Approach

Clapico's Blog WinLibre - Logiciels libres et gratuits pour Windows What's The Difference Between Linux Distributions If They're All Linux? [MakeUseOf Explains] When a user is first introduced to Linux, they might be told they’re using Linux, but they’ll quickly learn that it’s called something else. Yes, Ubuntu, Fedora, Linux Mint, Debian, openSUSE, and so many others are all variants of Linux, or “Linux distributions”. That’s cool and all, but if you give it a little thought, you’ll be asking yourself why there are so many different distributions in existence, especially if they’re all Linux anyway. Windows has multiple editions, but they aren’t marketed as entirely separate operating systems, Mac OS X only has a single variant (at least for the desktop). So why are there so many different Linux distributions? The Linux Kernel Since all Linux distributions are still considered to be Linux, that means there’s at least something that they have in common, and that would be the Linux kernel. That’s why it’s important to keep the kernel updated or to compile the kernel yourself if you have special needs. System Technologies Desktop Environments

Linux Environment Variables - Linux Commands LINUX CLASSES - THE BASICS Environment Variables Environment variables in the bash shell help you in several ways. Certain built-in variables change the shell in ways that make your life a little easier, and you can define other variables to suit your own purposes. · HOME defines the home directory for a user. · PATH defines a list of directories to search through when looking for a command to execute. To list the current values of all environment variables, issue the command env or list a specific variable with the echo command, prefixing the variable n ame with a dollar sign (the second line shows the result of the echo command): echo $HOME/home/hermie You've already learned how to customize your shell prompt with the PS1 variable. Understanding the Path Variable As in DOS, the shell uses the PATH variable to locate a command. echo $PATH/bin:/usr/bin:/usr/local/bin When you enter a command, the shell looks in each of the directories specified in PATH to try to find it. PATH=$PATH:$HOME/bin

Matériel OpenSource (OpenHardware) Cet article donne une définition du Matériel OpenSource (OSHW - OpenSource Hardware) et indique son intérêt pour la Recherche. Open Source Hardware (OSHW) Introduction et philosophie Le Matériel OpenSource (OSHW - OpenSource Hardware) est un terme qui regroupe des produits tangibles — machines, dispositifs ou toutes choses physiques — dont les plans ont été rendus publics d’une telle façon que quiconque puisse les fabriquer, modifier, distribuer et les utiliser. Le but de cette définition est de donner des lignes directrices pour le développement et l’évaluation de licences pour du Matériel OpenSource. Il est important de noter que le matériel est différent des logiciels, puisque les ressources physiques pour la création des biens physiques doivent être toujours disponibles. Ces propos pouvant paraître complexes ils se doivent d'être illustrés. Il est donc fondamental d'expliquer en quoi cette approche est inefficace. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.
