Implementing Agile Offshore Software Development

This post discusses why adoption of agile methodology has become important for organizations, what challenges are faced by remote teams in implementing agile software development, and what are the best practices for agile offshore software development.

Agile software development refers to a set of practices and methods based on iterative and incremental development, where requirements and solutions to problems evolve through effective collaboration between self-organizing and cross-functional teams. The practices and methods followed in agile software development are founded on the values and principles stated in the manifesto for agile software development.

Agile software development has been widely used when teams are present in the same office. But agile methodology can also be applied in the case of remote teams, where different teams are located at different locations, usually in different countries with different time zones. By effectively following best practices, remote teams can successfully use agile offshore software development methodology to develop and deliver a high-quality product.

Perl As Programming Language of Choice for Biologists!!

Perl as Programming Language of Choice for Biologists!!


Why Biologists (Bioinformaticians or Bioinformaticists, if the scientific jargon is to be preferred) Prefer Perl?

I am a bioinformaticist, and love Perl over all other computer languages when it comes to programming in biology. This is not only my case, majority of the biologists prefer Perl for their bioinformatics’ tasks. Perl can be given the status of being the mainstay programming language in the field of Bioinformatics or Computational Biology. There must be some reasons why this is the case; actually there are some very strong points that favor the use of Perl in biology over the other lot of available programming languages. But, to be honest, at times, other computer programming languages can be of more benefit than Perl, at least for a specific task. If you are not acquainted with Perl, click here for, what the heck is Perl? In this article, I will explain why it is justified to consider Perl as programming language of choice for biologists, and for the sake of information, I would like to tell that even the non-biologists too prefer it much!

Rational and Earnest Thoughts from an Earnest Scientific Mind for All the Readers with the Same Mind – Aditya Sardana aka Adidarwinian –

Biology is a Complete and Pure Science; Biology is the Pure Truth.


Science studies and describes facts and the facts mean all those things that are pure truths. Biology is a complete science, and therefore, it automatically becomes a pure truth.


As I am a hard-core biologist, I will before answering the question “What is Biology”, like to clarify that Biology is in itself a complete scientific platform on which are based a multitude of Applied Biological Sciences such as Biotechnology, Bioinformatics, Bioengineering, Medicine, Physiotherapy, and plenty of others.
