Entity 4.0 Blitz: Going from Zero to ADO.Net Hero in 60 Minutes

Presented by Arie Jones

With the recent release of Visual Studio 4.0, Microsoft has release their next iteration of the Entity Framework. For those of you whom have held off learning the new platform, now is the time to jump in. This version of the EF has tons of new features that developers have been clamoring for since the 1.0 release. We’ll cover things like: development approaches,T4 code generation, persistence ignorance, lazy loading, and much more! Plus, we’ll delve into how EF4 ties into your WCF applications as well as the new WCF Data Services(formerly ADO.NET Data Services). Come see what you have been missing out on and take your simplistic ORM mappings to the next level.
