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.

You will learn:

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