Learn SQL, dammit! - Gun.io: "Look at any ORM documentation. Most are littered with indirect references indirect references to SQL. You need to understand how SQL works in order to grasp these references. This begs the question: How much SQL does one need to learn in order to adequately understand the documentation? Think about it, though: it’s absurd that you would even need to learn any SQL at all! The very nature of an ORM is to bypass SQL. But now you have to learn both syntaxes! Adding more time and more work to your plate."
