Rowan Merewood Experiments in software engineering


Estimation or, “How to Dig your own Grave”

My talk for the 2011 edition of PHPNW11, then at the PHPBenelux, Confoo, and 4Developers conferences in 2012. Abstract as follows:

Clients need to know how much a project will cost. Waterfall development is always late and over-budget. Agile development is done when it's done. You're left with estimates that you know are too low and then you squeeze them anyway. It shouldn't be this way. We'll look at how this happens, early warning signs, ways out and ways of avoiding it in the first place.
