What's Wrong With ORM - Dave Cross
Thursday, The Onion Room, 1145, 20 mins

MVC frameworks are really cool at the moment. An important part of an MVC framework is the model, and that means that Object Relational Mapping (ORM) is really cool at the moment.

But most current ORM systems leave a lot to be desired. In this talk we'll take a look at the state of the ORM marketplace, largely in Perl but we'll touch on other languages too, and make some suggestions on how they can be improved.

There may well be some incidental ranting on database metadata and the people who don't use it properly.
