Breaking Databases - Keeping your Ruby on Rails ORM under Control

Posted by Alex Slotnick on Aug 12, 2015 11:16:00 AM

Object-relational mapping is common in most modern web frameworks such as Ruby on Rails. For the developer APIs, the ORM provides simplified interaction with the database and a productivity boost. However, the layer of abstraction the ORM provides can hide how the database is being queried. If you’re not paying attention, these generated queries can have a negative effect on your database’s health and performance.
