Description

Entity Framework Core 2 is the newest version of Microsoft's O/RM for performing database persistence in .NET-based software. EF Core is a lightweight and extensible version of Entity Framework that has been written from the ground up. Whether you are new to EF Core or looking to see how to shift your earlier EF experience to EF Core, this course can help you get started. First, you'll learn how to define an EF Core data model to act as a bridge between your .NET objects and your database. You'll then learn how to interact with the data model using EF Core's various APIs. Finally, you'll be shown how to incorporate this model into a desktop application based on the .NET Framework and a cross-platform ASP.NET Core MVC application. By the end of this course, you will be able to build .NET framework, or .NET Core software using EF Core 2. All coding will be done in Visual Studio 2017 in a Windows environment.

Course Overview
[Autogenerated] Welcome to plural sight. My name is Julie Lurman, and you may know me as one of the most recognized authorities in the world on Entity Framework, Microsoft's data access platform for dot net development. I'm so excited to share with you the newest version of Entity Framework or if Court to brings back more of the features many developers to pen it on in earlier versions of E. F as well as new innovations. Beyond that first iteration of the F core, it's the version that finally feels ready to many developers and businesses who were originally reluctant to try out F core. If you're already using entity framework or that first version of the F core, this course will help you learn how to leverage your existing E F knowledge to quickly get up to speed with the F core, too. If your brand new T f, you'll learn the basics and get insights that will take you further than a standard baby steps lesson. Whether you're building software for Windows or cross platform maps for dot net core, this course will give you an understanding of the variety of environments where you can build and deploy APS that use F core, too. You'll learn howto build and interact with data models and then build a desktop and a cross platform A s p dot net core app that use e F core to for their data access. While this course will use a familiar environment Visual Studio 2017 on Windows, everything you learn here will apply to any of the environments where you can build dot net framework or dot net core software. I hope you'll join me on this journey as you get quickly up to speed on using entity framework or two.
