Session Abstract

How to Win Friends and Influence…Better Developer Estimates

Let's face it, creating estimates for tasks is not an exact science. Whether it is points, hours, level of effort, or whatever else the next fad is, it all mostly boils down to what feels like a shot in the dark. Join my session to find out a few lessons learned, tips, tricks, and strategies for creating accurate and timely estimates on your developer tasks. I'll share my experiences in creating the majority of estimates at my company over the past 18 years. I'd estimate that the amount of estimates I have created is more than 500 or so...see what I did there? At the end of the day, if you can create better estimates, then maybe your project managers will end up becoming another one of your long-time friends.

About Beer City Code

Beer City Code is an annual conference for software developers held in Grand Rapids, MI, also known as Beer City, USA. Software creators of all types are welcome, even those who don’t care for beer.

The main conference is held Saturday, August 6. Note that, as we return to our first event since COVID, we will be keeping the event simple this year. There will be no workshops, diversity mixer, kids conference, or keynote for the 2022 event. We hope that these features of the show will return in 2023.

The Beer City Code conference grew out of the success of its predecessor, Grand Rapids DevDay, but was renamed in 2017 to embrace its much more broad appeal outside the Grand Rapids area.
