"If human thinking fails, try anthropoid thinking. Fresh approach helps remove the obstacle."
There used to be an ape-man in the photo: MoonWatcher.
His bio takes us way back in time. I like to think of MoonWatcher as my oldest known ancestor. Had he lived in our times, he'd be well versed in the following:
● Database systems:
• Airtable: database design, automation and scripting.
• MS-Access, his sentimental favorite, which handiness and versatility reminds of the ancient bone-made tools.
• other databases: MS-SQLserver • MySQL • PL/SQL • DB2 SQL/400.
• lastly a set of forgotten, prehistoric tools: dBase, Borland, Paradox, FoxPro.
● Programming languages:
• Visual Basic, all its reincarnations
• Cobol, all its reincarnations
• IBM AS/400-iSeries, its languages: RPG, Cobol, CL, SQL/400, Query/400.
As you've read up to this point, you may feel intrigued by MoonWatcher's origins and developments. Read the first chapters in Arthur Clarke's "2001, A Space Odyssey".
There, the anthropoid's fears and amazements, his early attempts at understanding the world, are magistrally depicted.
