writes "I've been a SysAdmin for about ten years now. During this time I have gone from working at a small organization to a much larger organization. I work hand in hand with developers to debug, find bottlenecks and in general assist. During this time I have never had any issues with developers, in fact one lead developer went to management and had me issued a monetary award for my "work" on his project. In the much larger organization, I am one of many sysadmins but I see that my peers also have good working relationships with the developers they work with. My question is, does the sysadmin/developer rivalry still exist? Has it gotten better in the past few months or am I and every sysadmin I've worked with "one of the good ones"?"
