Submission + - SysAdmin/Developer Rivalry

DA-MAN 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"?

At the source of every error which is blamed on the computer you will find at least two human errors, including the error of blaming it on the computer.
