Welcome to Cormoran project

This is the first post of the Cormoran development blog. Cormoran will be a very fast and lightweight Object-Relational Mapper (ORM) written in Python.

Currently, it accessed a large number of information stored in databases and is necessary to make this process as quickly as possible. This data access is done through applications, and its development is slowed by differences between database engines and the need to learn an additional programming language (SQL, for example).
At this point an ORM accelerates development of applications using databases, but slows the access to information. In general, an application developed with an ORM is several times slower than the same application running SQL directly. For this reason, the Cormoran project aims to improve the speed of execution through a simple and powerful framework and the optimization of different database engines.

Cormoran will be an open source software released under GNU GPL license.
