Estimation Basics

Jeff Atwood is continuing his series of commentary on Steve McConnell’s Software Estimation: Demystifying the Black Art.  I very much remember the exercise Atwood pulls from the book — I read this as part of reviewing McConnell’s book and thought it was amazing.

The numbers are pretty clear: what we estimators think is 90% certainty is more like 30% certainty.  Great stuff to read.
