In this session, we will look at what benefits an ORM can bring to your project, what we look for in a good ORM and introduce the most mature ORM on the .NET platform, NHibernate. We will look at what NHibernate brings to the table, why it should be your first choice of ORM on the .NET platform and cover getting started
