Follow author Ricardo Peres as he introduces the newest development mode for Entity Framework, Code First. With Entity Framework Code First Succinctly, you will learn the ins and outs of developing code by hand in Code First. With this knowledge, you will be able to have finer control over your output than ever before.
Object/Relational mappers (ORMs) exist to bridge a gap between object-oriented programming (OOP) and relational databases. At the expense of being less specific, ORMs abstract away database-specific technicalities and hide from you, the OOP developer, those scary SQL queries.
Entity Framework Code First is the latest edition of Microsoft's flagship data access technology. It sits on the "classic" Entity Framework, which has existed since 2009. Entity Framework already offered two development models:
? Database first, which generated code from an existing database.
? Model first, which defined a conceptual model from which both the database and the code were generated.
