This is the first 3 come to my mind at the moment
Yeah, estimation was one of the things I thought of, too—it's definitely something I've gotten a way better sense of with time, especially knowing how much extra time I need to build in for surprises coming up.
Surpises sound to much fun 🎉😂
The estimation is something I think I can never do properly. It's just so difficult. My speed of coding and analysing the whole situation can surely and has improved very much compared to last years but this estimation thing is just too much for my brain to handle.
Point two makes me 🤔 thank you!
8 years, I still can't estimate. I have a feeling at 30 years, I still won't be able to estimate.
In my experience there are only two estimates that consistently matter: "really really easy" and "really really hard." If your Product Manager thinks a task is easy but it's actually hard, you have to teach them so they can decide if it's really worth the effort right now (or at all). If they think a task is hard but it's actually easy, you have to teach them so they can decide if it should be prioritized for a quick win.
Is that 30 estimated years? :D
Almost 20 years in business and still cannot estimate.
