My feelings on ORM by Jeff Attwood

by Matt 5. January 2009 17:10

If you’re going to be ghost written, it makes sense to get someone good to do it for you.

ORM is clearly a religious issue, and some buy into it more than others. I’ve got reservations, and Jeff Attwood recently articulated them very nicely in a number of Twitter posts. Namely, ORMs are great for maybe 95% of the problems, but that final 5% you pay for.

codinghorror: for me, "leaky abstraction" means I am *forced* to understand the layer being abstracted to get it to work right. ORM,webforms.

And I think this pretty much nails it for me. The impedance mismatch is still alive and well and causing problems. Or to put it another way:

the only way to truly resolve the ORM problem is to get rid of the letters "O" or "R", depending on your tastes.

I have seen that today, more and more people are increasingly being attracted to cameras and the industry of digital photography. However, to be a photographer, it's important to first spend so much period deciding the exact model of photographic camera to buy as well as moving  store to store just so you can buy the most economical camera of the trademark you have decided to pick. But it isn't going to end at this time there. You also have to contemplate whether you should buy a digital digital camera extended warranty. Thx for the good suggestions I gathered from your website.

I can't wait to read this masterpiece. Ordering off the menu at fast food restaurants and old dangerous playground equipment have to be in the book!

but it seems a lot of it is popping it up all over the internet without my authorization. Do you know any solutions to help prevent content from being ripped off?

Some may think that because there are levels of payment that it must be a pyramid scheme; this could not be further from the truth. I get into the pyramid scheme question in another article, but in short, ACN provides products and services that are sold to the END USER and that very point is key to making any multi-level or Burnaby Internet Marketing legal.

unrelated but I was thinking which post platform are you using for this website? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. It would be helpful if you could point me in the direction of a nice platform.
