Yury wrote a great post on Agile Results in Russian.    The post is titled, Agile Results - a new approach to personal effectiveness. Description of the basic techniques and principles, and it's on a Russian productivity blog -- What I like about the post is that Yury gave a simple description and then walked some of the big ideas and enumerated the values, the principles, and the practices.  In my experience, one of the best ways to share any system is to focus on sharing the principles, the practices and the values.  
The principles help guide and focus on outcomes rather than have a rule for every occasion.   Practices are a great way to share “techniques”, especially if you give them fun or memorable names.   For example, I tested different names and went with things like Rule of Three, Monday Vision, Daily Wins, Friday Reflection, and Hot Spots.   The values help bring like minds together and that helps the system grow.)

The goal of this blog entry is to describe how you can use the Windows JavaScript (WinJS) library to create namespaces. In particular, you learn how to use the WinJS.Namespace.define() and WinJS.Namespace.defineWithParent() methods. You also learn how to hide private methods by using the module pattern.
