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.

[TStanley]: I'm sitting in the airport in Tampa, Florida at the moment, getting ready to head home.
[talexb]: TStanley I'm flying to Vegas in two weeks time. After that flights leaving Vegas and Phoenix are late at night .. I've been hearing that it gets so hot that the air isn't dense enough for planes to take off. Weird. Guess you won't have that problem.
