How to Estimate with John Hedtke

When: Wed, December 14, 2022, 1:30 PM ‐ 3:00 PM EST

Banner for IDL SIG event: How to Estimate with John Hedtke. Wednesday, 14 Dec 22. Times: 10:30 am Pacific, 11:30 am Mountain, 12:30 pm Central, 1:30 pm Eastern.

Whether you're a freelancer or a captive writer, knowing how much to estimate is one of the most important skills for any technical communicator. If you can't estimate, you can't set rates, schedules, or production dates. Conversely, being able to set precise estimates lets you make accurate bids and tighten your schedules so you can squeeze in that much more work. This 90-minute presentation shows you how to create documentation plans (so you know what you're producing), develop personal metrics (so you know how long it'll take you to produce it), and understand rates and how much is 'enough' (so you won't starve while doing it).

Get your tickets on Eventbrite.
