Fellow devs,

If your boss asks you for an estimation don't follow your gut coz your gut sucks. Ask for time to analyse before giving any estimation. And yeah don't forget external factors such as :
- third party tool down (github I'm looking at you)
- updates (windows, IDE, etc.)
- 90% of the time it doesn't work
- if it involves front dev just go ahead and double your estimation
- YOUR BOSS THINKS YOU OVERESTIMATED

Sincerly.

    Team lead asked for estimate. I said 20h. He wrote "2 weeks" to the PM. It took those 2 weeks, and then some to iron out bugs introduced by changes in specs after the 3rd day of work.

    Good team lead...
