No, it means that although you are using an RDBMS as a storage backend,
you nearly never have to write SQL code yourself. You write Python
objects as you are used to and define the mappings between database
tables and objects.

Well, you would need to know some basic concepts and a few facts about
the implementation (e.g. its limitations etc.).
