re: As a dev, what do you think about time-tracking? VIEW POST


As a freelance developer I think it's a valuable tool. Time tracking allows me to estimate how much my time is worth, or if I am losing money with some projects and need to maje some adjustments on my rates. But it's a self-imposed control that I am willing to do from time to time on specific cases.

In other contexts, maybe not so much. Being forced to time track by a project manager or something like that, specially if the people who hired you don't trust you and want to have some "guarantee" that you are working hard enough at home, that's just sad. It will feel like a waste of time, and probably will be.
