TOPIC DESCRIPTION

Have you ever been asked, "How long do you think this will take?" or "When will this be done?"  You're not alone. Estimating software projects is very challenging, especially when faced with evolving business requirements, a hallmark of the Agile process.

In this session, software engineering management expert Dave Todaro will walk you step-by-step through agile estimating techniques you can use to understand the size of your project and how long it will take. You and your team will quickly come up with accurate estimates and you’ll be able to forecast completion dates based on how fast the team is moving. You’ll learn how to deal with changes in scope and priority while always being able to tell management, “This is when we’ll be done.”
