TechEd 2013 Talks & Source Code

Posted on June 10, 2013. Filed under: ASP.NET, Entity Framework, Visual Studio | Tags: , , , , |

Last week I had the pleasure of attending TechEd 2013 to present a couple of sessions. Here are links to the session recordings, slides and source code.


Breakout Session: Entity Framework 6: Database Access Anywhere, Easily

This session covers the basics of EF6, open source, and a series of demos for the new EF6 features.




Channel 9 Live: Entity Framework 6

This was a short (30min) informal chat with Robert Green about EF6. We talk about new features and the move to open source.




Breakout Session: How to Build ASP.NET Web Applications Using Async

This session put me well outside of my comfort zone since ASP.NET is not my area of expertize. I tried to put together a talk that walked folks through the same learning curve I went through as I learnt the subject matter (in 75min rather than a couple of weeks).

I’m also fortunate to have access to a bunch of people who design and build ASP.NET and/or have presented on this topic before. Many thanks to Levi Broderick, Damian Edwards, Scott Hunter, & Glenn Condron for their help with previous content, reviewing my content and answering a bunch of questions I had. Thanks also to Brad Wilson and Steve Sanderson whose previously recorded sessions were a big help.

For several months I’ve been trying to figure out why we cannot simply have a version of Entity Framework that is BOTH code first and designer all in one. Therefore changes in the designer would have an immediate impact on the POCO entities and Mapping configurations and vice versa any changes to the POCO entities or the configuration files would automatically alter the edmx file.

Designer vs Code First all boils done to preference, but I see no reason why they code not be bridged to work together one in the same.

Maybe there is some technological impediment that I am not aware of that would preclude this capability from existing.

The Source Code link is no longer working, please repair. Thanks

Hey Brian, I just checked the links and they look ok – they should take you to a public folder on my OneDrive account. Let me know if you are still having issues with them.
