Developers and DBAs may not always get along, but there are solutions. From Doug Lane, for example, comes a video called the "Developers Guide to Understanding DBAs." According to Lane, the video answers the following questions:

  • What do DBAs value?
  • What do DBAs need from me?
  • What does my DBA want to help me with?
  • How big should that server be?
  • Is the DBA judging my code?
  • What happens if I get in trouble with my DBA?

And if that doesn't answer your questions, there are plenty of other resources to help you understand why your DBA hates you.
