Entity framework Core is a powerful Object Relational Mapping (ORM) framework that offers an automated mechanism to developers for storing and accessing the data in the database. It is designed to be extensible, lightweight and support cross platform development. This Video learning Path will provide .NET developers with this knowledge and guide them through working efficiently with data and will help you in Mastering Entity Framework Core.

The highlights of this Learning Path are

Explore advantage of Entity Framework and ORM Concepts.

Create New .Net Project with Entity Framework Core Model

Get Expertise on Mapping entities and database structure

Get Grips on the New features in Entity Framework Core

Perform migrations and protect existing data during rename operations

Master advanced query techniques

Delve into concurrency handling and understand transactions

You will start by understanding ORM concepts. Further you will learn to build your first sample project to see EF in action. Then know how to create mapping between objects and database structures. Learn how to create, retrieve, update and delete the data in a relational database using Entity Framework Core. This technology will allow you to deploy your data access logic across platform while eliminating the need to maintain database structure separately. You will then move to database configuration and learn how to write classes that define database structure. You will see how Linq can be used with Entity Framework to give you access to your stored data. You will then learn how to use Entity Framework to persist information in a relational database management system, such as SQL Server. You will explore Data Validation and learn how to implement data validation inside our model using attributes. You will also dive into Advanced Query Techniques. Then you will proceed to create custom migrations that update database schema. Finally you will dedicated to testing and setting up further learning path.

By the end of the Video learning Path course you will acquire necessary skills to program many applications helping you Master Entity Framework Core.
