ORMs vs Micro-ORMS

  • Innovate Calgary

    3553-31st St. NW., Calgary, AB (map)

    51.084316 -114.129509

  • Does your application need full power of Entity Framework or (shudder) nHibernate?

    Let's take a look at micro ORMs like Dapper.NET, PetaPoco, etc.

    -What is a micro ORM?

    -Where does it fit in to your app? 

    -How can they help simplify things?

    -When should you keep using a full ORM?

    -Why not build my own?

    Presented by David Paquette, Canada's answer to Julie Lerman.

      Hi David, In addition to 'roll your own'. I would be interested in options for customizing EF6 to increase it's performance. For example to use stored procedures to easily return objects into a context, tracked or not. Also any other techniques for improving EF6 performance beyond what is available on the net. Many Thanks - Steve

    Sorry to be forced to miss this interesting session... Family reasons need me in Italy. I hope that there will be another occasion to follow up on this subject.
