Database Developer Definition

This is the label given to someone that develops software that works closely with a database. Most custom software and web development interacts with a database and, as such, technically speaking a web developer or client/server programmer can also be called a database developer. However, a database developer may not have the necessary skills to be considered a web developer or client/server programmer. Database developers can be particularly good at accessing data from a database efficiently and quickly; a valuable skill when dealing with massive databases such as those that are to be found in use by sites like Amazon or eBay. Being able to focus on just the database side also allows such developers to better understand all of the systems interacting with a company's databases making their knowledge broader from a business sense.
