Dane Morgridge will be giving his talk tonight at HRNUG over LiveMeeting. You can join in the fun too! The meeting starts at 6:30 PM EASTERN TIME!
Getting Started with Entity Framework 4
With .Net 3.5 Microsoft release Linq to Sql and with .Net 3.5 SP1 came the Entity Framework, both powerful ORM tools leveraging Linq technology. Entity Framework v1, while usable, was definitely lacking some important features and the Entity Framework team delivered with version 4 coming with Visual Studio 2010. In this session we will look at Entity Framework 4 from the ground level and you will get a solid understanding of it basic principles. We will also go through all of the new features in Entity Framework 4 and see how far it's come since the initial release. If you've never taken a look at Entity Framework, now is the time as version 4 is the real deal.
