We are looking extremely hard at moving our company to an MRP/DM vertical solution written to run on the UniVerse platform. Our internal staff has dozens of years experience with filePro, mySQL, PHP, perl... yet we have no experience among the four of us working with UniVerse or any MultiValued/Pick DBMS.

The whole concept doesn't scare us since it appears to be a mashing together of a lot of concepts that we already are familiar with.

HOWEVER.

What about the newbies? Don't we get any love? I have went through every google term I could think of to come up with a simple "This is how you get started with a UniVerse". I have installed the personal editions and have the server running, but I have no clue as to really creating a database, defining a table, inserting data into a record, retrieving data from a record, and applying business logic to fields.

Is there not a "UniVerse for Dummies" website? Our sales rep asked his programmer and he said, "I learned it 20 years ago, I don't know how you would learn it today."

I have 23 and 28 year old programers that will have to live with this solution for the next 20 years. They're bright, but in order to get them excited about this platform I need to let them experiment.

Any website pointers will be appreciated.

Thanks,

Walter Vaughan
