Programming, every single time.
4 hours into the project:
"Awesome, this is straight-forward and we're almost done already!"
4 weeks into the project:
"WTF, how can this be so complicated?"
hehe, totally that. the most useful is always the longest to code. details are important and it takes the whole time
@fribbledom this was neatly observed in an old proverb, "the first 90% of a project takes 90% of the time, and the last 10% takes the other 90% of the time".
So this makes for 180% of time total, which explains why all software projects are always late.
(I know, I know, this was just a typo)
That's the best case scenario, yeah. Typically tho, management agrees on estimates before consulting the development team.
@fribbledom As the boss once asked... "How close are you to being done? Are you still in the first 90% or into the second 90%?"
@fribbledom "You can't tell how deep a puddle is until you step into it."
