    What do you suggest for relational DB?

    SQL and no-SQL have each of their own use cases. SQL is here to stay.

    On the contrary. I think SQL is not taught enough. Using an ORM is fine, but judging by most SQL related questions I've seen, people don't really understand how to use their DBMS.

    SQL's functionally is fine.

    The SQL language itself (aka, the EBNF spec) is easy to read but horrible to write and should be replaced with something that has a more intuitive structure, IMO.

    @netikras Json operations are not very intuitive. Then again, It's not something I use very frequently so I always just forget the syntax.

    @nitnip what? is JSON part of the SQL RFC? Did I miss smth?

    @nitnip using JSON in a relational context looks like the real problem here, RDBMS supporting it doesn't mean you should use it

    @hippolyte Like I said. I use it rarely.
