Brian McKeiver to Speak At Prairie.Code()
BizStream’s Co-Owner and Solution Architect, Brian McKeiver, will be speaking at Prairie.Code() on September 11-13, 2019. The conference is held at the Holiday Inn Conference Center in Des Moines, IA.

This year Prairie.Code() focused on bringing the most diverse and cutting-edge software development content. Attendees will find tracks on Emerging Technologies, Open-Source Technologies, Practical Agile, Microsoft Stack, Software Craftsmanship, and more! Prairie.Code() promises a conference packed full of content to take your skills to the next level, from the best local, national, and international presenters!

Brian McKeiver’s Session

Brian will be presenting on improving soft skills that all developers out there can benefit from with his favorite presentation of the year, "How to Win Friends and Influence...Better Developer Estimates". He has given this talk a few times now, and the feedback and participation from the audiences at THAT Conference and Code PaLOUsa have been amazing.

Attend Brian’s session on Friday, September 13 at 2:30 PM - 3:30 PM. 
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 for creating the majority of estimates at my company for the past 17 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 than maybe your project managers will end up becoming another one of your long-time friends.
