WTF Next? Dev ramblings from a master of nothing.

At Lamar Advertising

Wednesday, January 28, 2009
5:45 PM - 8:00 PM

Sponsored by: TBD

Presenter(s): Brett James and Steve Schaneville

Brett is a Senior Development Consultant at Sparkhound, Inc. with over
10 years of software development experience. The last 6 years have
been spent working with .NET technologies for both Web and Windows

Steve is a Software Development Manager at Amedisys, Inc. His
experience includes 9 years of C++ and C# development in Windows and
Web applications. Currently he is using the Entity Framework as the
data layer for a web-based SOA enterprise application at Amedisys.

Topic: ADO.Net Entity Framework

Brett and Steve will be discussing Microsoft's Entity Framework,
including its advantages and its shortcomings as an application data
layer. As they are using it in a large application that is in active
development, they will discuss some of the issues that have come up
using Entity Framework and how to work around those problems. Finally,
they will hit on Microsoft's roadmap for Entity Framework, as
Microsoft has big plans for it going forward.

The target audience is the intermediate to advanced .NET developer who
has a familiarity with layered application development, particularly
those who have previously worked with other .NET data layer
technologies (such as ADO.NET, DataSets, NHibernate, and Linq to SQL).
After the discussion, the audience will have a feel for what is
possible using the Entity Framework and have a head start toward
deciding whether or not to use it in their next application.
