  • We migrated to SQL. Our biggest learning? Don't use Prisma
    11 projects | | 9 Oct 2023
    One thing that keeps coming up is that SQL equals low productivity. I don't think this is true. I think the culprit is that most developers are using to heavily abstracting SQL using ORMs like Prisma that hides the database and SQL logic.

    Since building a SQL generator ( as a side project, I have become much more proficient in SQL and even though I am also locked into Prisma, I use the `queryRaw` all the time to execute raw SQL queries. You can understand the code without knowing Prisma API. It is more performant. For more complex SQL queries, I use the SQL generator for initial suggestions and adapt if needed.

    For the next projects I build I want to use the minimal Postgres client ( combined with a lightweight migration library.

  • Using AI I have departed from ORM and embraced SQL
    2 projects | /r/SQL | 13 Sep 2023
    For newer projects I use the small Postgres client. Initially my leap into SQL was lead by AI but as I refreshed and relearned SQL, I now use a mixture of AI and self-written SQL queries. Something like this is just easier to have AI do the grunt work and then adjustment as needed.
