Discussion on: How to provide estimates as a Junior Developer?

I tend to agree but usually provide clients with a ballpark range. I explain that the low number is the minimum effort required and the top one is with some nice features like x and x. As for junior devs estimating, I don’t expect them to. I quote the project for how long it would take me and then don’t bill all of the devs hours since they don’t move as fast as I can. As they speed up, I can start increasing their pay for projects.
