Why is it a good idea to buy Traffic Parrot if you are a manager of an Agile development team?
I have seen it take 3-10 days of development to create an over-the-wire stub with a GUI. Average Java developer pay in the UK is £450pd for contractors or £50k for permanent staff. £50k/252 days in a year is £200pd for a permanent developer.
An average estimate cost of in-house development could be minimum 3*£200=£600 and maximum of 10*£450=£4500. So you could be spending on average between £600 to £4500 in a year on developing a tool like this if only a team needs it.
So, a good guess could be you will spend somewhere between £600 and £4500 on a stub with a GUI, for example, £2500, if you build it in-house. Why not buy Traffic Parrot for Agile teams for only $49 a month, which is around £500 a year?
If there is more than one team developing a tool like this, which I have seen happen in one organization, you will spend a multiple of that number.
If you are doing pair programming, the estimate could probably be two times less to two more depending on the pair.
