But again bad code is just bad code. That is not a language problem.
Never saying it wasn't.
Really, my only point is that SQL was never meant to write complex applications in, but people who have no clue about SQL do it anyway.

I worked at a company where the DBA not only was not using source control he did not even know what it was.
But those are one-offs.
A one-off?
Think again, I've never met a DBA who knew about source control and I've never seen a database in source control.
Been doing this job for 13 years now and I've seen quite a few companies in that time.

But then they should have a DBA. Probably multiple DBAs.
And designs that optimize solutions before the code is written.
And budgets that allow for refactoring legacy applications (written when the company was very small.)
Like you said, it's a messy world out there.
If it works then why would a manager with no clue about IT make room in his budget for designs and improvements Wink | ;)
