Developing Applications with Entity Framework 5.0
This course starts with an introduction to Entity Framework, where you’ll learn about data access and object-relational mapping, how the Entity Framework works and the tools it provides, and you’ll see how to build an entity data model. You will explore the entity data model in more detail, learn about the model designer and the raw XML that actually defines the conceptual, storage, and mapping models. You’ll learn how you can use stored procedures and functions with Entity Framework, the most important ways to query data using Entity Framework objects, and the ways that you can modify and customize the entity data objects using the model designer, partial classes and methods, and events. Finally, you’ll learn about code-first development, which we are confident is going to become the primary way to develop new Entity Framework applications.
