This is one thing I am really thankful to Flatiron School for. They taught me how to do things the "long" way first and then they were like "oh and by the way here is this awesome ORM/framework that does all of that for you." As a SWE coach right now, a good bit of our students get frustrated with this learning style, but they'll come to realize that it's beneficial to know the how and why of the magic going on behind the scenes of frameworks and ORMS.
