Effort estimate to develop .Net apps
Posted on 2014-08-06
Hi Access, VS and C# experts
I have to re-develop a total of 24 developed Access apps accessing a SQL Server DB using Visual Studio 2013, C#, partially Windows Forms, partially ASP.Net depending on the type of app.
I have between 30 and 35,000 lines of VBA code to rewrite, and a fairly small amount of forms, let's say on average maybe 5 forms per app.
I have never used C# in big style, but rather when maintaining a couple of C#-based apps, and that's already a couple of years ago, so the learning curve has to be considered. I'm developing Access front-end apps hooked to various SQL Server DBs since probably 15 years altogether, so I'm not a novice :-).
What would be your rough ball-park estimate for the time needed to migrate all my apps ? In the form of "from x man-months to y man-months" would be good enough.
Thanks for your help.
