Course description

The course starts with an introduction to Entity Framework, where you will learn about data access and object-relational mapping, how the Entity Framework works and the tools it provides, and you will see how to build an entity data model. Then you will explore the entity data model in more detail, where you will learn about the model designer and the raw XML that actually defines the conceptual, storage, and mapping models. You will also learn how you can use stored procedures and functions with Entity Framework. Next you will learn about the most important ways to query data using Entity Framework objects. You are most likely to use LINQ to Entities, but other options include Entity SQL and an Entity Client API. After that, you will learn about the ways that you can modify and customize the entity data objects, using the model designer, partial classes and methods, and events. Finally, you will learn about code-first development, which we are confident is going to become the primary way to develop new Entity Framework applications.

Each LearnNowOnline training course is made up of Modules (typically an hour in length). Within each module there are Topics (typically 15-30 minutes each) and Subtopics (typically 2-5 minutes each). There is a Post Exam for each Module that must be passed with a score of 70% or higher to successfully and fully complete the course.


This course assumes you are familiar with the Entity Framework and using Visual Studio 2010.
