I have a effort estimation related question. Which Stack Exchange site should I use?

    Effort estimation... of what? I don't know that effort estimation is itself a specific topic of any particular Stack Exchange site, so it would help to identify what kind of effort you're estimating.

My take would be that like shopping recommendations, questions asking for an estimate for a programming project are not suitable on any of the sites. It's impossible to make a good estimate on anything without intimately knowing both the project, and the people who will do the work. This is by definition way too localized for a general Q&A site.

Questions about how to make an estimate - about methods, customs, and general pitfalls in estimating a project - may be suitable on Stack Overflow or - more often - the new programmers Stack Exchange site.

  • I agree with you. I am only looking for key considerations specific for certain platorms like Android and iPhone (Some of the considerations all of us know are the number of input fields / validation, number of buttons, etc) Thanks. Commented Jan 12, 2011 at 14:47
