Entity Framework Full Day Class

Saturday, December 01 2007

I'll be teaching a full day workshop at a number of conferences. Currently I am scheduled for the Developer Summit in Stockholm, Sweden in early April 2008 and DevConnections in Orlando FL in late April 2008. Read the full post for a description of the workshop and additional dates when available.

This full day workshop will provide you with a full overview of the soon-to-be released ADO.NET Entity Framework, Microsoft's new core data platform. In this session you will learn what the Entity Framework is and how it fits into your application and enterprise architecture. We will begin with an introduction to the Entity Data model, how to build it and how to implement it in it's simplest form. Then you will learn how to take advantage of the true power of the Entity Data Model by creating customized mappings and implementing it in real-world multi-tier architectures. You will learn how to query Entity Data Models using LINQ to Entities, Entity SQL with Object Services and stream data with Entity Client. The session will also explore some of the more complex features of object services as well as offer guidance as to when and where to you will want to use the Entity Data Model and which of it's core querying methods is right for different scenarios.
