comment Is the abundance of frameworks dumbing down programmers?
Under the logic of not using an ORM tool until you've "done it yourself" first, I probably also shouldn't use a database abstraction layer until I've written calls to the database directly? Or actually, I shouldn't use a database until I've written a storage system using the filesystem? Well, the filesystem is an abstraction, too... Where do I start? For each generation, they are going to start at a higher level of abstraction, or in order get more interesting things done in less time.
