Art+Logic at SXSW Interactive

Art+Logic will have representatives from our engineering, recruiting, and account management groups at the upcoming South by Southwest Interactive Festival from March 11-16th.

Art & Logic is once again trying to be selected to present a panel discussion at next year’s SXSW Interactive Festival in Austin. In 2014, we had a great experience there talking about things we’ve learned about doing estimates for software projects.

We had a booth on the trade show floor, and took part in a panel discussion on the topic of estimating software projects — (more…)

Thoughts on Estimating Software Projects

I figured that I’d use this unexpected idle time to capture some of the points that I hope I’ll be able to make.
