You’re aware that SQL is a powerful tool for working with databases. But in the modern application development environment, object-oriented programming is the most popular paradigm, and it is quite different from SQL.

Discover how Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) bridges the gap between object-oriented programming (OOP) and SQL and allows application developers to use OOP languages to work with databases without writing SQL code. Gain skills in using Django ORM, a popular ORM library for Python, to define models and fields so they can be mapped to database tables. Learn the steps for using Django ORM to convert your entity-relationship diagrams into Django models. Gain knowledge about using Django Model APIs to manipulate objects in databases without writing SQL queries. Explore the many useful methods Django Model provides to handle related objects.
