A few links:
- The book I recommended: Software Estimation: Demystifying the Black Art. I recommend you get it in paper, it's a good read and a good reference for later.
- Conferences I mentioned (had a few people ask) that are all in Columbus, OH:
- My company - HMB is a consulting services company in Columbus. Our secret to success is our focus on relationships (internal and with clients) and a great culture of learning. And lots of HMB swag :)
- Another slide deck I referenced for the ratios. This has some good content.
