Optimistic estimates

April 23rd, 2023


Frame 1: We think we can develop and release this feature in 2 weeks. 2 weeks? I can get this thing done in 1 day! Frame 2: The developer is intensively coding Frame 3: Coding intensifies Frame 4: Haha! Like I said: 1 day and it kinda works on my machine!

Post message

In software development, "it works on my machine" is never an acceptable "definition of done!" 😅

Do you have coworkers who always give really short estimates?
