Entity Framework Core, Microsoft’s Object Relational Mapping data access tool, was re-written from the ground up with .NET Core. By taking a fresh look, a number of features were changed and re-thought. This redesign caused it to continue playing catch-up to features added in 10 years of development leading up to EF6, while also exploring new programming options that have popularized since the original design came out, including non-relational data stores. In this fast focus session, we’ll explore the additions to EF Core 5 and how they can impact your application decisions.

You will learn:

  • Explore the new features of EF Core 5
