I noticed recently alot of Database jobs/Development have kind been pushed onto general developers, not to mention with NoSQL Solutions (Which IMO are probably a little easier for Non-DBA's to throw together) coming down the line. Do you feel like DBA/DBD (database developer) is a secure field for a CS Graduate to go in. Also...do you feel that Databases in General are still as popular as they were say....5-10 years ago?
For reference I do have a job as a Developer right now, but Databases is something that's always interested me.
I know theirs a Career Overflow site, but I'd prefer to keep it here since it's Specifically about Database Development/Administration.
