  • Immortal SoFar
    Immortal SoFar 1 месяц назад 30 years in the industry and I've found how to perfectly estimate the time any large project is going to take using the following formula: 1. Break the design down into individual, precise and bounded tasks. 2. For each task, estimate how long you think it will take. If there's no answer, then the task needs breaking down more. 3. For each task, add on time until the revised estimate is longer than it will possibly take. 4. Tally up the times. 5. Double it. That's how long the project will take. Don't know why but I've never known this fail.

  • UndeadWaffles
    UndeadWaffles 7 месяцев назад I like this video a lot, but the minute and a half wait to get to it nearly made me go to something else. The intro stuff could be cut down and the credits could be at the end. Other than that, I think this video is very well put together and touches on some very good points.
