Does anyone write code to access data in a database anymore, and by code I mean SQL? The answer to this question is'It Depends', just like everything in IT. Using REST APIs is very common for accessing processing data with a Database. From using an API to retrieve data, to using a slightly different API to insert data, and using other typical REST functions to perform your typical CRUD operations. Using REST APIs allows developers to focus on write efficient applications in a particular application, instead of having to swap between their programming language and SQL.
