Confluence Retirement

Due to the feedback from stakeholders and our commitment to not adversely impact USGS science activities that Confluence supports, we are extending the migration deadline to January 2023.

In an effort to consolidate USGS hosted Wikis, myUSGS’ Confluence service is targeted for retirement. The official USGS Wiki and collaboration space is now SharePoint. Please migrate existing spaces and content to the SharePoint platform and remove it from Confluence at your earliest convenience. If you need any additional information or have any concerns about this change, please contact myusgs@usgs.gov. Thank you for your prompt attention to this matter.

Estimating Software Development Tasks. Discussion: "What approach has worked to best determine when a (software development) task will be completed on time, within scope, and within budget? Single point estimating? Three Point Estimating? Story Point Estimating? 50%-90% Estimating? Padding your initial thought by a factor of 2,4,8 estimating?" The group discussed these options and also created a new #projectmanagement slack channel on USGS slack. (If you do not have a Slack account, email Paul Moreland (pmoreland@usgs.gov) and he will get you set up.) 

Learn more about the group at their wiki page.
