Estimation has instead caused reduced predictability, lowered quality and unhappy customers. Read this book to start exploring some more successful strategies!” 

Emiliano Sutil, PRoject Manager at Xeridia S.L.

Andy Deighton, Scrum Master, Bright Interactive

The compelling mix of theory with story means you’ll quickly learn the lessons and start benefiting from the book. Read, think and apply #NoEstimates today." 

Enric Jaen, Senior Programmer, SM2 Tecnologías de la Información

"This is a must read book to software managers. It is call to responsability to managers to not estimate but give actual data to clients. Following the #noestimates principle will make the life of people around software industry happier."

So who’s behind this?

Hey, I’m Vasco Duarte. I’ve been working in the software industry since 1998, and have learned the hard way what works (most of the time) and what does not work (almost never).

My goal is to help our industry evolve. We can’t become better without trying out new and innovative approaches to software development. The majority of our businesses runs on software. We owe it to our society to get better at an activity that affects so much our lives and our countries’ economies.

I consult companies that understand software is a key component of their business model. You can find me and get in touch via twitter: @duarte_vasco; or on my company’s web-site:
