6:30pm - Session start
Session 1: Getting Started with ASP.NET Core
ASP.NET Core was finally released to market in June 2016. After several release candidates and lots of community input, Microsoft has given their stripped down, cross-platform coding platform to developers. However, there is still a lot of misconceptions on what ASP.NET Core does and what the right scenario is for its use. In this session, Ken Cenerelli will walk you through the various aspects of ASP.NET Core. He will highlight what each component contains, when you would use a Core project instead of targeting full .NET framework, and how you can leverage the new features Core provides.
Session 2: Is EF Core the right choice for me?
Entity Framework Core (EF Core) 1.1 was recently released to market in November 2016. In this demo-filled session, Obi Oberoi will walk you through multiple scenarios where using EF Core makes practical sense. Obi will highlight the tooling that EF brings out of the box, how it compares with other ORMs, when you should use EF Core over full Entity Framework, and how you can leverage the new features that EF Core provides and more!
