Developing a successful software system requires more than just coding skills. Many of these skills are ignored by teaching institutions: it is up to the programmer to research and learn them. These skills range from interpersonal skills such as empathy — being able to listen to and understand what the end-user wants — to technical skills such as project management.

This technical note is about estimating the time taken to develop a software project — probably one of the least understood and implemented skills, yet one of the most important.
