Agile development and Scrum in particular have opened the
door to powerful new estimation approaches. This course provides many
useful rules of thumb, procedures, and lightweight math for creating
software estimates ("the art of estimation") and briefly introduces
mathematically-intensive approaches to creating software project estimates
("the science of estimation").
This course features extensive lab
work to give you hands-on experience creating many different kinds of
software estimates--for large, medium, and small projects as well as
calibrating estimates to be accurate for your specific development
environment. This seminar is based on the best selling book Software
Estimation: Demystifying the Black Art, by Steve McConnell.
