HORK stands for: HORK Object Relational toolKit.

HORK is an open-source Object Relational Mapping (ORM) toolkit for database systems.
HORK supports SQL Server and DBLX, and we will be adding support for other databases as the project
moves along.

HORK was designed by developers that use ORM frameworks every day. HORK will eventually provide everything needed
in an ORM, but will have to retain its low complexity and very good performance.
HORK only contains the features needed to move data to and from the database. Unlike other ORM's,
HORK does not add features that replace things the database already can do.
HORK is designed to be as fast as a custom Data Access Layer, and in most cases will be faster than
available class serializers.
HORK was also designed to be used on most operating systems.
HORK is written in C#, and is compatible with .NET 4 or later and with MONO v.3 or later.
