Estimates is one of the most difficult issues in SWE. It’s not because of lack of our competencies but complexity and non-linearity of social and software systems.
In this talk I’ll try to show why sometimes we can’t do estimate at all but sometimes we can. We’ll see the patterns of internal engineering complexity and tools to deal with it. What’s the difference of R and D and how to estimate in these contexts. So for outcome I want to give some working patterns of estimating you can take to your project rigth now.
