Mike Taulty, has decided he needs a bit of sea air, and so is heading for the South Coast to mix it up with us guys at NxtGenUG Southampton. It looks like Mike and Daniel Moth are trying to collect the full set of NxtGenUG regions! Mike will be talking about the new Microsoft Entity Framework.
Here's the blurb:
"ADO.NET Version 3.0 raises the level of abstraction at which we deal with relational data in applications by adding a new managed provider which uses a conceptual model which it maps to the actual tables and views of your database schema. This has the advantage of providing the Entity Relationship model that application developers want to code against whilst isolating the application code from the specific language (e.g. T-SQL, PL/SQL) and engine (e.g. SQL Server, Oracle) of the store. In this session we’ll take a good look at the Entity Framework from its mapping layer through to its EntitySQL language and on to its Object Relational Mapping capabilities and LINQ."
We will also have NxtGenUG member and MS Launch Event Ready Steady Speak! 'Hero' Neil Robbins delivers his second nugget this time on IIS 7.0.
So don't forget to sign up to avoid disappointment, get your hands on some decent swag and have some pizza while you are at it!
