So Cal Code Camp Session on Entity Framework 4.0

I’ll be presenting a session at Southern California Code Camp entitled “What’s New in Entity Framework 4.0” on Sunday Nov 22nd.

I gave the talk yesterday at the conference, which took place at USC.  The room was filled to capacity and about 25 more people tried to get in but couldn’t!  Had a great time, but I wish I had two hours to present instead of just one – so much to talk about. :)  Here are slides and demos from the talk, which I am going to present again as a DevelopMentor webinar on Dec 8th.

Update: I have updated the demos to cover POCO, T4 Templates, Loading Options, Change-Tracking, Model-First, Code-Only, and N-Tier.

    Hi Tony,
    Thanks for the talk at code camp on sunday.
    Thanks for the sample code as well.
    I am new to entity framework, but I am redoing my site with MVC

  2. David says:

    (SORRY, hit enter accidently) and I will be using entity framework as well because you confirmed that it will be sort of replacing LINQ and over shadowing ADO.NET Std usage ? Did I get that correct ?

    You have a very nice looking family.

  3. Tony says:

    Yes, Entity Framework is really the way of the future. And it’s looking good for the next version, which will be released in March. LINQ to SQL isn’t dead, and it might work for some projects, if you can guarantee SQL Server on the back end. But if you want the most longevity, I would recommend Entity Framework, because MS is really throwing its weight behind it.
