Rob Bagby’s back in town, people!  Although only temporary, he’s armed with some exciting stuff around Entity Framework 4.  Come find him in a city near you (schedule below).

MSDN Events Presents: Entity Framework 4

You are not going to want to miss this half-day event where Rob Bagby will be illustrating how to take advantage of the Entity Framework 4 in your applications.  The event will be split across 3 sections and will be demo-driven.

 

Part I: Modeling, Mapping and Relationships

In part I, Rob will start with an overview of Entity Framework 4.  He will then delve into modeling and mapping with the EF.  He will cover how you can create a “conceptual” or “application-centric” model within the framework to meet the needs of your application.  He will also cover relationships in the Entity Framework, including the new Foreign Key relationships in Entity Framework 4.

 

Part II: Querying the Model

In part II, Rob will provide an overview of your querying options in the Entity Framework.  He will discuss your querying options in Entity Framework 4, including the following:

  • Entity SQL – What, how and why you might choose to use it
  • Query Builder Methods – What they are
  • LINQ to Entities – LINQ to Entities Overview; Method-Based Syntax vs. Query-Based Syntax
  • Stored Procedures – Read and Write
  • Views, Defining Queries – Composable items

 

Part III: Updating the model and Real-world functionality (given time)

In Part III, Rob will discuss working with Object Services to track changes and perform persistence.  This section will include a discussion of the new templates in Entity Framework 4 aimed at working in disconnected environments: the POCO template and the Self-Tracking Entities template.  Given time, Rob will illustrate how the EF supports functionality that real-world applications require such as concurrency, validation and transactions.
