Entity Library Quick Reference



Once helpful source for quick reference when getting started on the Entity Framework is the MSDN Entity Framework Quick Start.  You will find four concrete sections covering the basics so you can get up and running.

Many information out there talks a lot about the code first features, but I find myself needing to create the .edmx file from an existing database, which could be tricky to find out there.

In the series of posts I’m preparing I’ll share how to use these techniques and approaches on a layered small, but well designed backed app that will empower RESTful services that can be consumed by any device.

In the meantime, have Entity Framework coding !

And no tech posts still…



I know….I haven’t been able to post any tech related posts for a while now, and I keep just blogging about how busy I have been and that I will soon start to post something at least remotely interesting….

Well, I’m still on the same position, but finally seeing some free time to work on my blog soon. I have been putting together a comprehensive sample/tutorial for building RESTful services with WCF, C#, Entity Framework and MS SQL. The code samples are already running, so is just a matter of putting together the posts.

Also, I haven been playing around with Windows 8 development preview and Windows Phone, so hopefully I’ll start posting about them too.

For now, it has been about finishing work related projects, enjoying some time off with my wife in Italy and getting used to the cold of London’s upcoming winter !
