How To Estimate Software Development Time

↔️ ↕️


have you ever been part of a

conversation like this

so we've got a great job for you it's a

simple change

the hardware is mostly already in place

you know all of those old telephone

boxes that no one ever uses anymore

well we want you to write some software

so that instead of a phone call

when you dial the number it will

teleport you to the box with that number

it's a great idea isn't it easy so how

long will it take

can you have it ready for next wednesday

okay so i've exaggerated a tiny bit but

that question

how long will it take is always a tough

one to answer

even when you don't need to invent new

physics so

should we answer it at all and if we do
