Session Name: The Art of Estimating Programming Tasks
Speaker(s): Adriana Lopez
Company Name(s): BioWare
Track / Format: Global Game Development/Outsourcing
Overview: Have you ever been asked to provide an estimate for a task only to be horribly wrong? ... it took you 2 to 10 times more than what you expected. We all have been there and the consequences are visible: projects missing dates, teams blocked by dependencies, and overtime, lots of overtime. The good news is that the battle is not over. With a couple of tools and a little bit of practice, each one of us can improve the quality of the estimates given for a project.
