My early career as a programmer relied heavily on Microsoft Access. When Microsoft released Access 1.0, I began a series of consulting projects using the new technology.
After college, I was hired at Meliora Systems, where I became the Lead Developer on a commercial software package (Ingenium) developed entirely in Microsoft Access 2.0. I maintained that product for several years, until we migrated the package to Visual Basic with SQL Server and Oracle back-ends.
Although I do not program in Access as often as I once have, I still use Access from time-to-time for smaller projects.
