DBA Central: "DeveloperWorks" isn’t just for developers


I've been getting some feedback lately about the role of developerWorks as a resource for Data Management information.  

From what I'm hearing, awareness and usage seems to vary, with a tendency for those of you involved on the distributed platforms to use it more frequency, while those of you involved on the mainframe side may have other resources that you've been using that may predate developerWorks.  Is this an accurate statement?  (And if so, I'd love to know what sites you mainframe folks find most useful.)

One of the other pieces of feedback I've heard is that the name itself - "developerWorks" - doesn't necessarily accurately describe the scope of content in there (in other words, that people who may be DBAs may think that's only for developers and not them).  With that in mind, I wanted to be sure everyone was aware of the DBA Central page on developerWorks.
