About ORMs and future Python courses to come

Hi everyone. I'm following the Python/Flask courses and as I've seen there is some other courses I'm interested in, but I would like to move forward so I can anticipate a little that's why I would like to know, which ORMs are we going to use in the Django course and also in the Flask REST API course? Does anybody knows?

Thanks for the help.

Django has it's own built in ORM - so the course will almost certainly use that. (I believe it's possible to use other ORM's with Django but not very easy to do and almost never done).

Flask Rest API course - not sure, but as there is already a course on peewee that's likely, failing that SQLAlchemy is the most popular ORM used with Flask.

These are all based on the python DB-API so have some commonality to them:
