Entity Framework 6.1, Part 5 of 6: SQL Server Features

with Don Kiely

In this course, you’ll learn about a few of Entity Framework’s more recent additions to support SQL Server features. You’ll start with a look at Entity Framework’s support for hierarchyID or, rather, it’s missing support. Then you’ll jump into one of the best new features in Entity Framework in a long time, that would be enums, which you can use to protect the integrity of your data. Next you’ll explore Entity Framework’s support for spatial data, which support location-aware applications and data. You’ll wrap up the course with a look at table-valued functions and their support in Entity Framework.
