You Might Not Need an ORM

23 March 2016

Over the last few months, my colleague Michael Nygard has been writing The New Normal series over on the Cognitect blog, arguing that our industry needs to embrace continuous partial failure and aim to build antifragile systems.

In his most recent installment, Mike shares some ideas on sharp tools and their value in eliminating code. Mike worked with several teams that considered object-relational mapping (ORM) for Datomic, concluding that with Datomic, you don't need ORM at all. Datomic lets you eliminate an entire architectural layer from your applications.
