Topic: Software Estimation Software estimation is always difficult to do well. Estimation is rarely taught in school and gets little attention in professional training. This presentation, built heavily on material from Steve McConnell, delves into the topic with the goal of improving estimation with a few simple rules of thumb as well as improving the understanding of the culture and politics surrounding estimates that often cause conflicts.

Speaker: Chris Kessel I've been a developer for just shy of 20 years and started with Java shortly before its original 1.0 release. I'm passionate about the craft and maintain an active interest in software history and culture, especially as it impacts best practices.
