Canberra .NET User Group: “Why you should stop estimating" - Gerard Beckerleg

*PLEASE NOTE: Microsoft Canberra has moved. The user group will be held at Microsoft's new address: Level 4, 6 National Circuit, Barton.* 


“No Estimates - Stop lying to yourself and your customers, and stop estimating” – Gerard Beckerleg
After his hugely successful session last year Gerard Beckerleg is back to take on one of the most divisive topics in software: estimation.

Gerard Beckerleg will take a dive into the depths of this controversial topic and extract the most interesting ideas and raise some very difficult questions about the big white elephant in the room that is Software Estimation.​

After examining the pros and cons of estimation Gerard will lay the blueprint for a better way to help you and your clients get what they are really looking for.
