Hi Joseph 👋🏾

Alex here from the Prisma team.

I would encourage you to try out both ORMs and share your overall experience. My opinion is going to be biased but I would encourage you to try out Prisma. Some of the benefits Prisma offers are query auto-completion, type-safety when composing your queries and intuitive data modeling.

If you get stuck, feel free to reach out 🙂

Well, I'm glad to tell you that I chose Prisma.

Sequelize is good too but I lost it when I got to defining associations. It's really confusing to me. After going through the Prisma docs, I was able to understand how to define associations.

So far, Prisma works well for me and the VSCode extension makes it easier to work with.
