Entity Framework Core 5 is a library created by Microsoft that supports the development of data-oriented software solutions. It allows performing CRUD operations without having to write SQL queries. It enables .NET developers to work with a database using .NET and eliminates most of the data-access code that typically needs to be written by you, the developer.
Learning this invaluable technology is not hard. With some .NET and C# knowledge, any developer can master the art of producing data in your web app or API while also saving, updating, and deleting the same database in the database. In this talk, we will introduce and demonstrate EF Core's basics to get any developer started.
