Most developers are developers, not DBAs, yet many smaller companies have inadequate database experience in-house. This is largely because databases like MySQL and PostgreSQL don't necessarily require a full-time DBA to administer. It's become more important for developers at smaller companies to have some basic knowledge of how to keep their database happy.
Steve Meyers has worked as a PHP and MySQL scalability expert for the last 14 years at such companies as Omniture (now part of Adobe), Spark Networks (owner of jDate.com), and CrimeReports. He now runs some of the largest independent online communities of college sports fans. He also does work for the Utah Open Source Foundation, and runs the local Linux user group.
