Database Developer

Bookmark This


A database is a collection of huge chunks of data in the form of integers, characters, strings, images, Boolean values, etc., that can be retrieved within seconds and used by the users. Database is usually used to store processed form of data. The raw data which is available with the users need to be processed manually and then stored in the database. Database also allows updation and deletion operations on the data that is stored. Every computer program needs the support of the database as a backend for its proper functioning. Hence database is very important and integral part of a software development system.


A database developer develops database right from the scratch
He collects data, analyzes the collected information, designs algorithms, draws flowcharts and then implements code for the logic developed through algorithms and flowcharts
During the code development process of the database a developer has to develop appropriate queries that can help him to retrieve data from the database, look into the security issues of the data and develop structures, procedures and triggers
He also has to design Relational Database models and test the developed code with test data to make sure the code is error free
If any errors are thrown when the code is running then they should be corrected and once again tested
Database developers are also supposed to prepare and maintain report of the entire backend development life cycle
Once the development process is completed and all the front end modules are ready, database developers need to work with the front end development team and help in integrating the modules together
If the modules are successfully integrated then the integrated code is again tested by the testers and errors if any are sent to the development team for fixing
If integration of the modules fails then the database development team has to rework on the modules and fix the problem


Database developers should have mastered database programming skills using database languages like Oracle, PL SQL and MS Access which are widely used. Expertise in writing queries and creating tables using Relational Database Management System (RDBMS) is also essential for database developers. Apart from database programming languages, they should have ability to design logic and understand the concepts of other programming languages which are used in the frontend development process.
