This course will help you understand the goals and benefits of using Entity Framework 6 for data access and guide you through creating your first code-based model to store and retrieve data using EF’s APIs.
If you are new to Entity Framework, Microsoft’s framework for integrating data access into your .NET applications, this is the place to start. You will gain an understanding of what EF is for, how it works, where it belongs in your software architecture, and how to get it there. You’ll gain hands on experience with the basics of using EF from designing a simple model to interacting with that to persist data from your application.
