On Nov 27, 2007 I'll speak about Query Options for Entity Framework at DevTeach in Vancouver, BC. Following is a preliminary outline of the talk:

  • An overview of the Query Pipeline and the processes that take place there.
  • Shapes of results that Entity Framework can produce.
  • Interesting queries using Entity SQL.
  • Similar queries using LINQ to Entities.
  • Interesting mapping scenarios:
    • Retrieve data through stored procedures
    • Native SQL views
    • EntitySQL views
    • Inheritance
