comment Is there empirical evidence supporting Brook's Law (or a modification of it)?
These are what's wrong: I'm looking for some kind of impartial, broader, ideally peer-reviewed/replicated investigations of the ideas. and I'm having trouble finding such research. and I'm looking for the results of research in this area, which would normally mean whatever the closest thing is to the latest published peer-reviewed literature review of relevant IT project management research. Maybe I'm using the wrong terms, but I'm not finding anything. That's nice, but we aren't search engines. Focus on the problem. Good answers should cite experiences and research as appropriate.

The existence of open questions doesn't mean that they shouldn't be closed. And different sites have different rules. We tend to expect questions here to be focused on solving a particular problem, not finding resources and references and publications.

This meta thread and this meta thread are more relevant. It reads like you are asking for an off-site resource. That may not be your intent, but closure is intended to give the author and community a chance to fix the question before it attracts low quality answers. If you either disagree with the closure or need help fixing the question, you can make a new meta question.

@user568458 It looks like you're asking for a paper or book. That's an off-site resource and asking for them is off-topic. If you aren't looking for a paper or book, can you edit your question to make it clear what you're looking for?

comment When estimating with a fresh team on a new project, is there a reason not to use default velocity for estimating?
What is your "default velocity"? How are you generating this? For the first sprint, you do need to pull some number of story points into the sprint. However, you don't know what that number is until after your first sprint is finished (and it will likely vary for the first few sprints before settling to some roughly consistent value, ideally). Does this question on how many story points to bring into the first sprint help you at all?

comment Comparing the Java language to non-Java JVM languages
@gnat I don't see how. The existing answer addresses the one on-topic and acceptable part of this question (the first paragraph). The second, third, and fourth paragraphs make this question too broad and/or primarily opinion based.

comment Comparing the Java language to non-Java JVM languages
I think your main question may be a good one, but it doesn't read like the main focus of the question and could lead to attracting low quality answers. You should edit this question to focus on taking advantage of the JVM and removing the commentary about the verbosity of Java or your desire to learn Python and the paragraph asking for views and opinions.
