Entity Framework Core (previously known as EF7) has been self-described as “Microsoft’s recommended data access technology for new applications in .NET”

EF Core is effectively a complete rewrite of Entity Framework designed to work in more places and with more persistence stores so you can use non-SQL data sources.

This talk covers:

  • What has changed and what remains the same compared to EF6
  • EF Migrations: from powershell to the new dnx commands
  • Configuration and Initialisation using Dependency Injection.
  • DbContext lifecycle management
  • How to hack / override EF behaviour.
  • Is it ready for Production use? My suggestions for the team

Take the Poll!

Which of these features from the EF Core roadmap would you most like to see implemented next?
