Today we had the Developer, Developer, Developer event, a one day filled with technical content in Melbourne. I did a presentation on “Developing your data access layer using ADO.NET EF 2^2”. The session walked through some different approaches you can take when developing your data access layer using the new version of ADO.NET EF. The session also went through some tools and libraries such as the Database Generation Power Pack to provide a preview on what might be coming in the near future.
On a related note, I published an article recently on the same topic on Simple-Talk couple of months ago.
