Estimation patterns for engineering tasks. How to avoid comparison of warm with soft.

50 minutes

Talk

Russian

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.

Points of View: key to good communication in the team - see quality behind diagrams

I think the root of all evil in software development is misunderstanding and communication impedance of the team. Especially if team members are in different production roles. This directly leads to project and product fails.

In case of issues and fails team members reactively solve it. But can we behave more proactive? This means managing quality early and not to be a hostage of issues.
Yes, we can! And the key to proactive quality management is to decrease mentioned misunderstanding and communication impedance of team.

In this talk I’ll describe team comminucation framework based on concept of Points Of View. Also we’ll disscuss three particular patterns you can instatly take away to your project. Please prepare your own project cases in form of text description or UML so we could discuss it.
