Estimates: a specially tricky subject when it comes to Software Development. Estimates are one of the classic project management artifacts and yet they have remained in the backbone of many agile process implementations.
In the past years, different voices have questioned the very nature of estimates and the reason why we do them, as the #noestimates movement “explores alternatives to estimates [of time, effort, cost] for making decisions in software development”. To many, this is just another buzzword which replaces things like velocity or story points in Scrum or XP, but we can find its justification in statistical analysis and modelling. The new approach brings us more reliable tools to forecast and predict how much work we can do.
This talk will debunk some myths about estimates and will explore in depth the history and implications of #noestimates . We will discover the tools we can use to support this new approach: from a more reliable statistical modelling to Montecarlo forecasting.

Software Crafters Barcelona is a two day event which aims to attract and connect software development professionals, who feel passion for their work and share the values and principles of the Crafters movement.
It aspires to be a meeting place that facilitates the magic of learning, teaching and collaboration, where participants create a gratifying and enriching experience.
It doesn't matter who you are, your knowledge level or your favorite programming language. We encourage you to participate if you:
- are passionate about software.
- want to be involved, or are already involved, in the Software Crafters movement.
- want to share your knowledge, experience, or skills.
- enjoy learning by helping others and believe that sharing is key to your own progress.
In addition to technical contents, it will be fun. There will be beers, and we'll have stimulating conversations late into the night. Software Crafters Barcelona is an opportunity to meet new friends, face new challenges while learning and further improve your skills.
