Session Description

This session will discuss the importance of storyboarding, different ways to storyboard, and how to estimate a project properly.  I’ll discuss my method of breaking down a project to identify how long it will take to complete. There will be a short demo of an estimating tool I developed in FileMaker and I'll discuss how to use that information to prepare an estimate and manage the project once it is started. Lastly, I’ll do a test case with details about a project I completed and compare estimates to the actual cost.

What you should know

In order to estimate properly one should know the developer’s level of experience to roughly calculate the amount of time needed to accomplish the requirements of the project.
