Earlier this month, I had poll on this blog where I asked question – Are you a Database Administrator or Database Developer? The word DBA (Database Administrator) is very common but DBD (Database Developer) is not common at all. This made me think – what is the ratio of the same.
Here the result of the poll:
Database Administrator 36.6% (254 votes)
Database Developer 63.4% (440 votes)
Total Votes: 694
This is open poll, if you want you can still participate here.
Vote your Voice – DBD or DBA?
I think it is the time when DBD word for Database Developer gets place in our dictionary.

Thank you for the opportunity to voice this opinion – DBA is really confining in that it seems to imply knowledge of storage and optimization techniques for database software/hardware. Developer on the other hand can do all this and work out the details from requirements serving as more of a go-between business people and machines.
Just my two cents,
Don’t forget there’s a third type of SQL Server professional: Us Business Intelligence guys!
“Us BI guys” – lends itself to a third level as it were in the hierarchy: DBA could be part of DBD which could be part of BID, that is Business Intelligence Developer?
I would have BI over in their own column .. maybe the DUAL table. Most BI, that I work with, have little understanding of what they are doing other than ‘playing in BIG data’ with Tableau. Yes, playing on my server in my database built as DBD.
DBD is more commom.
which one be eassy to learn DBA or DBD
DBA is less easy to learn compare to DBD as this involves logically thinking outside the box.
