Learn how to consume, persist and work with data stored in a database in any type of C# application. This course will teach you the different ways to work with data access in C# and what to keep in mind when applying this in your real-world applications.

What you'll learn

Creating applications that work with data from a database can be tricky, especially since there are multiple ways to do this. In this course, Data Access in C# Fundamentals, you’ll learn to consume, create, and properly work with data that you have in the database. First, you’ll explore the different ways of accessing data in C#, giving you an insight into different decisions you have to make depending on where you want to access data. Next, you’ll discover the most popular way of consuming data in C#, which is done through Entity Framework.

When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of building applications that consume, and persist data in a database to build powerful, real-world applications.
