Entity Framework has made great progress over the past several years and introduced a lot of features that help you build rich, highly encapsulated domain models. In this course, DDD and EF Core: Preserving Encapsulation, you will learn foundational knowledge of pitfalls and shortcomings to be aware of when applying Domain-driven Design to applications with EF Core. First, you will learn how to preserve encapsulation of your domain models in such applications. Next, you will discover various mapping techniques that will help you to build complex domain models. Finally, you will explore the tips and tricks that will help you navigate around the common ORMs’ issues. When you are finished with this course, you will have the skills and knowledge of Domain-driven Design needed to adhere to DDD principles without compromising on domain model encapsulation.
Course Overview Hi everyone. My name is Vladimir Khorikov, and welcome to my course, Domain‑Driven Design and EF Core: Preserving Encapsulation. I'm very excited to share this course with you. Entity Framework has made great progress over the past several years and introduced a lot of features that help you build rich, highly encapsulated domain models. But there still are pitfalls and shortcomings that you need to be aware of. This course will show you how to preserve encapsulation of your domain models and apply domain‑driven design in applications with EF Core. You will learn various mapping techniques, and that will help you build complex domain models on one hand and leverage the full power of EF Core on the other. Some of the major topics that we will cover include mapping value objects, working with detached objects, mapping one‑to‑many relationships, and implementing a domain event dispatcher. By the end of this course, you will know everything needed to start applying domain‑driven design in your own projects with EF Core. Before beginning this course, you should be familiar with the C# programming language and Entity Framework. I hope you will join me on this journey to learn how to combine domain‑driven design and EF Core, here at Pluralsight. .
