“What’s New in Entity Framework 4?”

ADO.NET Entity Framework (EF) can help you more easily create and maintain data-driven applications using flexible data models featuring entities and relationships. Entity Framework 4, part of .NET Framework 4 and Visual Studio 2010, includes many new features and improvements. This demo-heavy talk will start with a brief introduction to EF, then focus on what’s new in EF 4, including designer improvements, persistence ignorance, model-first support, lazy loading, N-Tier, complex types, foreign keys, and more.
