Object Relational Mappers like EF Core exist to take the drudgery out of getting your Object-Orientated C# code to talk to a relational database. Opinions on this vary from “ORMs are the Vietnam of Computer Science” to “If you write data access code, you are stealing from your client”.

Like any powerful tool, EF Core can help you a great deal when used carefully, or cause chaos when thrown blindly at your codebase.

This talk covers:

– An introduction to the primary features of EF Core
– How to use EF Core with clean code principles
– What’s new in EF Core
– Techniques to monitor performance and what to do about badly behaved queries.
