Description

"Here is the specification; how much will it cost to create this software?" I hear this almost every day from my clients and prospects that are planning to become our clients and outsource the software development to us. My best answer is "I don't know; it depends." Sounds like a strange response for someone who claims he knows what he is doing, doesn't it? "Here is the 20-page specification that explains all the features of the product; how come you can't estimate the cost?" I can, but I won't. Here is why.

Agenda

I never spoke about this, but wrote a blog post: http://www.yegor256.com/2015/06/02/how-to-estimate-software-cost.html
