UserGroups

From Pickwiki
Jump to: navigation, search

In the past there were many Pick / MV groups. Many are now defunct. Over time those groups have given way to more product-specific groups, focused on each specific DBMS, specific connectivity tools, and specific business applications.

The prevalence of online communities in the form of web discussion may have helped contribute to the demise of monthly/quarterly personal get-togethers. A list of MV-centric online discussion forums is on the Community page.
