oh wait. we can't use orp560. it uses the old sql.
jessica, sr dev
oh yeah.
3 months.
eddie, tech lead
 
ok. 3 months.
dunning, manager
but wait. if we use the sql emulator, we could use orp560.
jessica, sr dev
 
you're right.
1 month.
eddie, tech lead
ok. 1 month.
dunning, manager
 
but wait. we don't have anyone who knows the sql emulator.
it'll take 2 months to get someone up to speed.
