As part of my current project work, I’ve had an opportunity to look into developing a data access layer using the Entity Framework. My previous experience with similar technologies was converting XSDs to classes for clean serialising of data to XML so I was curious to see how things have advanced.
So far it’s looking good. There are plenty of options in how you can approach using it but at the basic code level it is very familiar it style to what I’ve done before. And for me that is a great way to dive in and be productive quickly.
