Re: Workflows & Standards & good practices

Hi all, This is a very interesting discussion. Here are a few comments I don't really feel like I have a 'workflow', but rather than just not reply I thought it might be interesting to really think about why I don't have, or don't feel like I have, a workflow. Some reasons are: * I don't tend to eve...

It also makes us think harder what is really more important. I assume you ranked your list according to importance. My ordering was...

Re: Ten simple rules of credible practice

Some initial thoughts. From the above list, the ones that stand out to me as being the most important are: Use version control Define the context the model is intended to be used for Attempt verification within context Attempt validation within context -- I would include the rule 'Define your evalua...
