What do you mean by "Multivalue" developers?

That's the general term for the "technology" used in my particular field. It is mostly unknown by the larger microsoft/java world.

It is sometimes called "PICK", after it's founder Dick Pick back in the 1960's.

I was introduced to it during college back in 1983, when I had a coop job, working my way through school. Since then, I've worked in small IT shops that have incorporated a Multivalue database somewhere in there system.

Most companies that have it, use it as their main backend database and access the data through some other winform or webform technology.

Back in the late 90's and early 2000's, I did a lot of classic ASP and Visual Basic development that accessed mutlivalue databases. Today, I do mostly direct development/maintenance on multvalue with a touch of .net (C#) here and there.
