    My layperson's understanding is that you and your friend would be considered an organisation but not an enterprise, so see the clause "If none of the above apply, and you are also not an enterprise (defined below), then up to 5 of your individual users can use the software concurrently to develop and test your applications". That's just my layperson's understanding though. You should contact Microsoft or a lawyer for clarification/confirmation.

    Are you developing the application as an individual or as part of an organisation? See https://visualstudio.microsoft.com/license-terms/mlt031819/ for whether you can use Visual Studio Community Edition 2019 or not, particularly sections 1a and 1b.
