(Online) Revisiting our old friend, the ORM (Russ Harding)

Location visible to members

Title: Revisiting our old friend, the ORM Abstract: When developing .NET or .NET core applications, there are very few enterprise applications that do not interact with a database of some sorts. A lot of the time, we as developers tend to use tools that make that interaction easy, and fit nicely inside the OO box we are all used to working in. This is often sufficient, but can also lead to performance and reliability problems that are not obvious because the tool obfuscates those interactions for us. • How can we discover where these tools - such as Entity Framework - are working well versus where we should take care to observe and tune the tools we are using? • What steps can we take to address out of the box functionality that may work great when testing or development, but fail to meet expectations in a real-world environment? Like any tool, and ORM is not set and forget, but needs to be maintained, tuned, and adjusted to meet our needs. Bio: Russ Harding is a Principal Technical Consultant/Architect at EQengineered a builder and problem solver at heart. He enjoys wrestling with the details that impact business and technical success while keeping the big picture always in focus. Russ is dedicated to helping clients and teams make high level design choices and enforcing technical standards including software coding standards, tools, and platforms. Russ holds a degree in Computer Science from ITT Tech, is certified by Microsoft in Azure Fundamentals and by Scrum Alliance as a Scrum Master. Russ is a combat Veteran who served in the U.S. Army as a Specialist in the Field Artillery. NOTE: This will be an online meeting only. RSVP for event link.
