Entity Framework (EF) Core is a lightweight and extensible version of the popular Entity Framework data access technology.
EF Core is an object-relational mapper (O/RM) that enables .NET developers to work with a database using .NET objects. It eliminates the need for most of the data-access code that developers usually need to write.
In this session, Erik Ejlskov Jensen will give you a detailed overview of EF Core, how it relates to it's predecessor Entity Framework 6 and what the plans are for future versions of Entity Framework (both 6 and Core).
There will be a number of demos of new features in the latest versions of EF Core 2.0 to 2.2.
In addition, Erik will give you a tour of "EF Core Power Tools", a free Visual Studio extension he maintains, that will boost your EF Core development efforts.
