    Development Time...

    Hi there,

    Quick question.

    Programmers: in your estimate, how long would it take (in hours) to make the following changes to an ecommerce website?

    The website was built in ASP.NET.

    Shipping calculations (around 35 different shipping rates, according to region)
    Default shipping rates (2 defaults, depending on total spend)
    Installing a CSV bulk uploader into the 'Products' section
    Currency Converter seems to be inaccurate (will this affect prices charged?)
    Extra window pops up when default mp3 is activated (want to delete this window)

    ?

    Any ideas?

    That's not really enough information nor detailed enough to give any kind of accurate estimate of hours. To provide an answer based on that information would only be at best an educated guess. More detailed requirements of each change would be better for determining an estimate based off ones own established metrics.

    Also, you are the only one who knows what your skills are...so estimation is an art that takes a little time to learn - I'm still learning. Just don't underestimate.

    However long I think it would take under normal conditions, I always quote 2.5 times that.
