In this course you’ll explore some of the ways that you can create data models using the tools provided with Entity Framework and SQL Server Data Tools in Visual Studio. Then we’ll reach down into the guts of the XML that makes up the three Entity Data models, conceptual, storage and mapping. So that you have a good understanding of how Entity Framework implements many of its features. The XML might be intimidating just from the sheer volume of it, even for a simple data base. Put you’ll see how it is pretty straight forward and quite understandable.
This course assumes that you are experienced with relational database design and programming concepts. Entity Framework is all about data access, and the course doesn’t spend any time on data fundamentals. You’ll also need a good understanding of object-oriented programming in C#, so that you know how to use the entity data objects that Entity Framework generates from your data model. You’ll also need to have a working knowledge of Language INtegrated Queries (LINQ) in C#. The course uses Entity Framework with various SQL Server databases, so you should know enough about SQL Server to know how to perform various tasks and be able to connect to a database. But you don’t need deep knowledge of SQL Server to use Entity Framework productively. You should have already viewed the Entity Framework 6.1: Introduction course before taking this course.
