EF Core is a brand new version of Microsoft’s ORM, Entity Framework. It’s been re-written from scratch and is open source, cross platform and feature rich and even richer with EF Core 2.0 around the corner. Since we don’t have enough time to show every new feature of EF Core, Julie will begin by relaying the key points that someone who has been using EF6 or EF Core should be aware of, then crack open Visual Studio Code and show off some of the features she’s currently most enthralled with.
