Archived from groups: comp>databases>sybase (more info?)

Hi,

Kindly enlighten me as to who a Sybase Developer is:

Is it that a Sybase Developer is involved in:

-- Application development using Sybase as the backend (and using some
other tool as frontend)?

OR

-- Only developing business logic using stored procedures and other
database objects and tuning queries/procedures?

I know that the query might sound silly, but since I am hoping to
become a full-time Sybase Personnel (Developer/DBA), I would like to
state exactly what I am.

I did search through Google but could not come across a clear
definition.

Many Thanks in advance,
Dhannya

And you never will. Pick a simple title, but be prepared to describe in
detail exactly what your expertise is.

Personally, if I heard the term "Sybase developer", I would expect that
person to be able to design, administer and tune a Sybase database, with
particular emphasis on writing complex stored procedures, triggers and
queries. IMO, the developer should also be able to assist application
programmers in making their programs work efficiently with the that
database (determining what kind of cursors to use, etc), but wouldn't be
expected to have detailed knowledge of application programming.

Hmmm. Then how do you describe a "Sybase DBA" after considering the
previous line? Perhaps I read "Sybase developer" as intrinsically meaning
"Sybase application developer" and there is a difference?

To me (and again, this is just personal opinion; I've never seen any
authoritative description of the terms), there is little fundamental
difference between a DBA and a developer, except that I would consider
the DBA to have more emphasis on the day-to-day operation
(administration) of the database, while the developer would have more
emphasis on design and development of it, particularly the stored
procedures and triggers. Obviously there is a lot of overlap between
the two functions. BTW, after thinking about it a bit more, I would
probably put the performance tuning more under the DBA function than
under the developer function.

Thanks a lot for the explanations... May not to state what I am, but to

explns would be a great help, indeed.. Smile
