Whatever language or framework your team prefers to develop with there is no escaping requests for estimates. Estimates are needed for planning, budgeting and prioritization.

However there is a problem - our estimates tend to be wrong and sometimes very wrong indeed..

Which leads us to the obvious question: Why are we building plans on something that's probably incorrect?

In this session we'll look at why we are so bad at estimating and alternative approaches.
