1/3 I do read HN and I sometimes value the feedback of it, but when I have insider knowledge (including 3rd party knowledge to hide biases) its also a stark reminder of the echo chamber or audience bubble that HN is.
Some days are grumpier than others...
OK, experts who think story points aren't about cost, and that cost isn't essentially time, educate me. What are they, what are they good for, why do we estimate them?

"Unlike computers…human beings aren’t meant to operate continuously, at high speeds, for long periods of time. Rather, we’re designed to move rhythmically between spending and renewing our energy."

Welcome to the PHP Community on Mastodon! We're a friendly little Mastodon instance providing a place for PHP developers to discuss topics related to PHP, as well as topics unrelated to PHP. First and foremost, we're about building community, and that doesn't always involve technical discussion, so feel free to go off-topic and have fun.
Before you get started, make sure you check out our code of conduct.
Thank you to Jakob Westhoff for allowing the use of the photograph "elePHPants walking through the light."
