I have launched a new website, estimating.dev to focus on software development estimates. My goal is to put longer form and higher quality posts focused on estimates on the new website. I will still be posting here regularly on all things software.
Software development is a massive multi-billion dollar industry, but our estimation practices are not great. Computer Science degrees focus on math and algorithms without any consideration of estimating projects as a core skill. Most of us in the industry work off of whatever our flavor of Agile practice recommends whether its Scrum, Kanban, SAFE, etc. My goal is to research what we know about estimating software projects, and develop simple ways we can use that in industry. The goal is to do a combination of popularizing better techniques and developing a recommended style of performing estimates.
