Entity Framework 6.1, Part 1 of 6: Introduction

with Don Kiely

In this course you’ll learn some of the basics of object relational mapping systems and how they overcome some of the problems when working with relational data in an object based application. You’ll also see how entity objects are a big improvement over generic data objects, such as the data set and the data tables provided by ADO.NET. Then you’ll learn specifically about the Entity Framework, Microsoft’s ORM technology and why it is a compelling data access technology in the .NET development space. Big spoiler, it’s not just because Microsoft has made Entity Framework their core data access strategy. You’ll see Entity Framework in action to build a simple but powerful data access application as well as some of the APIs and tools it provides.
