Mapping Real-world Classes in EF Core

by Torben Boeck Jensen

This course will teach you how to ensure data from your .NET classes are mapped and persisted according to your needs.

What you'll learn

EF Core is an essential tool for many .NET developers. In this course, Mapping Real-world Classes in EF Core, you’ll learn to use EF Core to map your classes to a database. First, you’ll explore how EF core infers the database model based on your classes, and how you can change the default configurations. Next, you’ll discover how to perform complex mappings, such as mapping many-to-many relationships, and inherited types. Finally, you’ll learn how to map your own database object such as user-defined functions and indexes. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of Entity Framework Core needed to move beyond the basics of mapping data, and start working with data access in a much more sophisticated way.
