Entity Framework is an object-relational mapper that enables .NET developers to work with relational data using domain-specific objects. It eliminates the need for most of the data-access code that developers usually need to write.

Topics covered:

- Code First & Database First

- DbContext API

- LINQ to Entities & method syntax with Lambda expressions

- Initialize Database

- DataAnnotations

- Database Migrations

- Entity Framework Power Tools

- Entity Framework 5.0 Beta

    Just wrap it in a powerpoint and you;d be good to go for a code camp talk. I did one on EF last year. I'll probably not be here so it will be good to have someone doing at least one.

    Bought the food and gave the lesson! When considering the amount of experience (said he was new to the subject), he was well prepared. If he wanted suggestions on how to improve presentations, I would recommend (I never done this in my presentations, but I would do it in my next one because I really liked how others implemented it):

    * PowerPoint Slides rather than Word document
    * Commented out Code for each of the scenarios, and remove comment when moving to next scenario. This will avoid hiccups in bad builds.
    * Extend desktop display to monitor (the projector in this case) rather than mirroring your screen. This will allow you to show members one thing, while you look at another. This would be good for power point slides with a bullet point title, but you read what you're going to say on your screen.

    This is not a negative review, just possible suggestions to help out in future presentations. Thanks for volunteering!

    Good overall. Wasn't familiar with the tech coming in and seemed to give me some basic background on the topic and what it can do. The conversation between knowledgeable programmers gave me some good insight as well.
