Recently I found an ORM that I really like: Dapper. It’s small, simple, and fast. It can be useful on even the smallest of projects. Dapper is a simple object mapper for .Net that extends the IDbConnection interface. It contains helpers that execute queries and map results in a very elegant way. The best part is the performance is close enough to plain old SQL that it’s well worth it. It will reduce the amount of code you write as well, by a long shot.
