Entity Framework 6.1, Part 6 of 6: Code-First Dev

with expert Don Kiely

This course will start by covering how code-first works by default, which will probably work for most applications early in their development cycle. But when you’re ready to deploy the application to a production server, or need more flexibility in how Entity Framework creates a database. You’ll see how to create a code-first model and create a database from it, and see an application that makes use of it to maintain data in the database. You’ll also learn how to customize the database using both data annotations and the DBModelBuilder API, which lets you write code instead of use data annotations. Last you’ll see how code migrations is a newer feature of code first that goes beyond just deleting and recreating the database when the model changes.
