Worst part of being a database dev:
It is arguably the least sexist dev job out there.
Don't think anyone is going to be interested in how you 'reduced the runtime of a query from 30 minutes to 5 minutes for a front-end app used by an important client' or 'used the data dictionary to better handle resource management for important transactions.'12
Doing an Oracle training course and the first ten minutes is spent equating electricity to Big Data. Now I'm waiting for Oracle to develop a general theory of relativity based on exorbitant license fees.2
