If that is the case then one of two things is the issue.
- The developers need to be fired or trained because in many shops the developers are as knowledgeable as the DBAs. Dell in Austin Texas, where I was last week, comes immediately to mind. Their entire team is sharp.
- The management needs to be fired or trained because they should never have allowed a situation where developers did not have the required skills to be database developers.
If you are willing to tolerate a situation where DBAs are competent and developers are not then, analogously, you are willing to tolerate a situation where judges are competent and attorney's are not ... or surgeons are competent and surgical nurses are not. I find none of these situations tolerable at any level.
