    Generate type-safe code from SQL

    In the end, I think ORMs are an nice tool if used appropriately in the correct scenario. Once you balance out the positives and negatives however, it may seem that including an ORM in your stack may not be the best idea once your startup scales. I love tools which make SQL easier to work with! There's something called sqlc which basically compiles SQL to type-safe Go. Tools like this provide us with some of the same advantages as an ORM, just without effecting our actual database workflow.
