We have updated our EF Code First / MVC tutorial series to use Visual Studio 2013, Entity Framework 6, and MVC 5. New Entity Framework 6 features covered in these tutorials include:
The series includes the following tutorials:
The old EF 5 / MVC 4 series is still available at a new URL:
The old series covers some topics that have not been included in the new series yet. We plan to add these to the new series later:
If there are other topics you’d like us to cover in these tutorials that we haven’t covered yet, please let us know.

Is there any tutorials that pertain to just MVC 5? I would love to see some of the new features at work. TY
Particularly extending the ApplicationUser() Model and modifying the OAuth to work with it (async)? That would be fun!
The www.asp.net/.../release-notes list new features, not many for MVC 5. The biggest is the Identity which you mention in your 2nd question. I show how to do this in my secure azure MVC tutorial (altho I don't use async, but you can get that elsewhere). see www.windowsazure.com/.../web-site-with-sql-database
I am looking for an example of how to relate 2 tables based on a non-primary column. In this case Entity A has a property that returns Entity B means many to one relation.
For getting help with that you have several options -- you can ask questions on the ASP.NET Forums or StackOverflow (see the links at the top of the first tutorial in the series), or you can request a code sample at
