Sandy Mamoli (Nomad8), Bridging the gap between DBAs and developers

Sandy writes: One of the things I have learnt from the development community are agile methods which certainly aren’t the answer to all problems but which represent an honest and intelligent attempt to improve our systems by applying an empiric approach which is based on reality rather than wishful thinking about how things should be. For me those methods are worth to be looked into and to be tried in real life.
