Topic: Goodbye Entity Framework 1, Hello Entity Framework 4!
The 1.0 release of the Entity Framework was not a resounding success -- developers found themselves fighting the framework. Thankfully, Entity Framework 4 enables you to work how YOU want to work. Database-first, Model-first, or Code-First -- you decide. Self-tracking entities, POCO entities, custom entities -- you decide. Auto-generated SQL or stored procedures -- you decide. With a slew of new features EF4 will allow you to quickly achieve a high level of productivity. This demo-heavy presentation will cover the new features of Entity Framework 4 with a focus on features that will enhance the quality of your code!
