You know the rule: for every project that involvs software, just proceed this way:

1) Take the estimate and change the unit to the next bigger one: 2 - 3 hrs  ----> 2 - 3 days.

2) Square it: 2 -> 4; 3 -> 9.

So, expected time to developp it: 4 to 9 days. smiley-twist

Maybe you should read that last phrase again (the todo). Do the work in your head and ask yourself: "Is this possible to do in 2 to 3 hours".
And then: "How long will I need to explain what I need to the programmer?"
I'm sure vffgaston his estimates are far closer to reality tan yours.

When I finished my degree I "didn't recognize a computer from a chocolate tablet" (old -and opportunetly translated to english- spanish adage).

Then I learned (consecutively and -sometimes- simultaneously) code machine & assembler (8085/8086), basic (several dialects), pascal, dBase, (sure I forget some) and, finally C (arduino C, in fact).

Belive me: change units and square it. smiley-wink

I did. I compiled the program, started a few mods.

I'm sure not. I used to be involved even as my first job in dev, I'm able to make such estimations
And if it takes more than 3h, that's not an issue. Either I like the job and we go on (and for further projects), either I consider coming back to code. But I'm so busy right now for learning a new stuff... I will, but I need to have a prototype earlier than it

What do you need for? Sketches, PC application, buttons. Explain and we will estimate.

sensor values are displayed on 2 screens. I want to change font (smaller) for them to be on the same screen (128x64 oled)
Then remove button function for rotary (to set a value)

I've done programs for companies 30 years ago. They seem to add things as fast as you program them.
Get paid by the hour is only way to go.

I did so (and have the same experience). The only effective way I know is to write the specifications down in a paper. It makes no difference if it is a formal contract or a bar paper napkin. (And it's much better if you repeat some of them than if they are poorly specified).

(The subject suggest me another ethnic discussion -I'm spaniard-: I thought this -improvising- was a national sport. Is not it?). smiley-confuse
