The introduction of MVC to the ASP.NET stack opened up a new paradigm for building web sites and web applications and, this new way of thinking leads to new ways to interact with your data. Microsoft has been promoting the Entity Framework, which many people feel is too abstract, esoteric, too much overkill, or just too darn difficult to learn. In this presentation, James will dispel all the myths and tabloid rumors you may have heard about EF and take you on a gentle dive into the following:

  • A brief history of EF
  • How EF becomes the mediator between developers and DBAs
  • How to build an EF Model
  • Wiring up the Model to your MVC app
  • The supporting role of repositories
  • Using LINQ to EF to get to your data
  • How to win friends and influence people by embracing EF
