Presentation and Article on ADO.NET EF 4

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.

I am down in Sri Lanka these days and was a speaker at Tech.Ed Sri Lanka held here at Waters Edge. I did the following sessions as part of the event.
1) WCF 4.0 Tips and Tricks
This session went through features such as Routing, Discovery and explained how it can help overcome problems faced in the prior WCF versions.
2) Developing with ADO.NET EF 2^2 - More than one way to skin a cat
This session went through different approaches of developing the data access layer such as Model first, Database first and Code only etc.
Hope it was informative for anyone attended
