Entity Framework is a popular .NET object-relational mapper from Microsoft that eliminates the need for most of the data-access code that developers usually need to write. Entity Framework is increasingly being used in high transaction server applications (ASP.NET, WCF, and other .NET server apps) where scalability becomes a major issue. This talk will focus on teaching you how to use distributed caching in your Entity Framework applications for removing scalability bottlenecks.

You will learn:

  • Scalability bottlenecks and how distributed caching resolves them
  • Where in EF applications to use distributed caching
  • How to handle EF Entity Collections and Relationships in distributed caching
  • Important features in a distributed cache
