Object Relational Mapping technologies, including the Entity Framework can drastically simplify the programming model against databases, but when done carelessly, performance can suffer. In this session, we'll explore some real-life strategies that have solved performance issues in production applications that I have encountered at a variety of customers. We'll discuss the pros and cons of working without stored procs and cover strategies for monitoring and tuning your entity queries. We'll also look at some of the differences that exist between EF 6 and EF Core that may impact the performance of your migrated code.

You will learn:

  • How to profile your database interactions through Entity Framework
  • Identify typical performance issues based on real-life examples and how to fix them
  • How EF 6 and EF Core generate different queries and how you need to modify your data access strategy as a result
