I agreed there were many lazy developers around. Many developers just knew a few basic commands and somehow they could do their jobs. They used the same template to write their procedures over and over again instead of looking for some good ways of doing things. Even when other developers showed them how to do things better, they refused to learn either due to laziness or they had a big ego. In my case I felt some of my male co-workers especially had a hard time to listen to a female developer. Hehe

Only GOOD developers read the editorials as they (dare I say we) are the ones keen to further their knowledge and are often DBAs too!

Hey, lazy is a strength as well. It's part of the reason we have so many tools and utilities. Developers build things so they don't have to work.

So why don't they learn the better way to do things and build something to help them there? It's the "selectively lazy" that can be a problem.

And I'm not immune myself.

Heh, heh, heh I have a surprise for you!!! I am a developer and proud of it. I am also acting as a DBA for my clients and very much still in training but I bet that with my experience as a developer and working as a DBA I will (maybe not knowledge wise but eagerness to learn wise) kick all of your smartass DBA butts. I have learned a lot from this website and have a lot of respect for the people running it but I have never seen a lot of smuck and snobistic people like those that claim themselves to be DBAs. Shoot, we all are just trying to do our jobs here please!!!

I have a surprise for you. I too, am a developer. I was using sarcasm to gently chide the author of a particularly offensive editorial.

Charles,

The editorial wasn't meant to be offensive, and wasn't aimed any particular individual.

However if you can say that you've never worked with developers that don't want to make efforts to write code to handle simple things like parameters and data conversions on the client, I'd be amazed. The Internet is full of samples, articles, white papers, etc. that show they don't do it.

I'd be amazed if you hadn't worked with a lazy DBA or two as well, but lets not tar all DBA's with the same brush.
