In this episode, Robert is joined by Phil Japikse for part 3 of a 5 part series on Entity Framework Core. Aimed at folks new to EF Core, Phil shows how to start with an existing SQL Server database, create entities/objects for each table and then how to perform basic CRUD operations on the data.
Find the sample code at https://github.com/skimedic/presentations/tree/master/DOTNETCORE/Channel9.
Part 2: Change Tracking https://youtu.be/ta46892FM6g). Change Tracking is one of the most compelling reasons to use an object-relational-mapper (ORM) like EF Core. In this episode we discuss how the change tracker works, see it in action, as well as load data outside of the change tracker.
Part 3: Basic Queries (this episode).
Part 4: Querying Related Data and Using Projections (https://youtu.be/aX9EBlRM9U8). Querying related data is simple in EF Core. In this episode we demonstrate creating joins in our LINQ queries with Include and ThenInclude. We also discuss how you use projections to shape the queried data into other objects, anonymous or strongly typed.
