Sales team came in earlier this week promising a client an application with several major modifications in less then 4 months. Guesstimating about 6 months to complete all the modifications.

Manager's answer: "Let's rewrite the application". Top it off he wants to use a obscure language that he only knows.

    @abdallahesam , I have worked on projects that took one month and projects that have taken 18. The time on the project has to do with scope and requirements. For example in an enterprise you can spend one month on authentication and authorization architecture if it is a complicated app with a lot of rules. I have a project that I will be starting on soon and I am estimating 6-8 weeks but it could easily expand to 12.
