in reply to Improving Your Ability to Estimate

As software developers, we have a reputation as a group for making pretty lousy estimates.

Being a software developer, I want to figure out how to make application work especially which are challenging. It requires testing to find out, if it is technically feasible. Now I really cannot estimate that, because it takes several attempts. I try several different ways till it works. Learning happens simulatenously in this approach. Learning and focusing in strict manners may help to estimate better.
