Newer SQL Server-Specific Features of Entity Framework 6.1.x

Microsoft has a lot of related technologies, and you'd probably expect that the relationship of two of its products, SQL Server and Entity Framework, would be pretty tight. Entity Framework, after all, is their self-proclaimed primary data access technology for just about every data store available from both Microsoft and third parties. But, unfortunately, you'd be wrong about the tightness between the products. SQL Server often introduces new data types and other features but Entity Framework lags in incorporating them. Eventually support for those features makes it into Entity Framework, and this webinar will explore some of the more recent additions, dating back to version 5.0.
