Cardbox is a database for end users. It indexes text (words, numbers, and dates) quickly and easily, and you can attach images and scanned documents to every record.
The very first version of Cardbox was released in 1982, and since then over 100,000 people have used it in one way or another. Cardbox has been used for contact lists, address books, archives, photographic inventories, museum catalogues, personnel, recruitment, abstracts, academic research and criminal investigation. Cardbox is used by everyone from individuals and small businesses to multinational corporations and United Nations agencies.
No business sector is immune to Cardbox, and there are Cardbox users on every continent including Antarctica.
This blog is about the software business: everything from development to documentation to debugging, with illustrations from the history of Cardbox. It’s intended for everyone in the software business and everyone who’s interested in it. It’s not specifically aimed at Cardbox users and you can enjoy it without ever having seen or used the program.
