Today, we are going to be going over a very useful tool called Sequelize. It is an Object Relational Mapper (ORM), which allows us to interact with relational databases using Node.js.

In this post, I will provide an example of creating a generic CRUD repository that leverages the performance of Dapper while providing flexibility for a multitude of scenarios..
