ADO.NET Scenarios Map

ADO.NET Scenarios Map

  • Comments 4

The ADO.NET Scenarios Map is a consolidated and shared view of the common scenarios and tasks around Microsoft data access technologies. You will find Getting Started and Architecture scenarios first, followed by other common areas. Scenarios in each group should represent common tasks developers would face when building applications that access or interface with data.

Your call to action here is simply scan the ADO.NET Scenarios Map below and either share your scenarios in the comments or email your scenarios to me at feedbackandthought at live.com.  Be sure to share your scenarios in the form of “how to blah, blah, blah …” – this makes it much easier to act on and update the map.

For a quick review of what a good Scenarios Map looks like, see my related post, 5 Keys to Effective Scenario Maps.
