Omaha .Net User Group February Meeting
Start Time: February 28 2013, 6:00 PM

Posted by mruwe at February 18 2013, 4:33 AM

Fellow .Net users,

Many thanks to those of you who came to our January meeting and stuck with us through the late food arrival.  Dustin gave a great MVC talk and I for one learned a thing or two (as always).  I’m sure that February won’t be any exception to this trend as we have another great speaker lined up to talk about another hot topic (but the food will show up on time).  

Please take note of our new location for this month.

Our next meeting will take place on Thursday, February 28th starting at 6:00 PM. Food and drinks will be served 15-20 minutes before the meeting starts.

**Topic:

**Introduction to Code First Entity Framework

In this presentation we will be covering some of the common conventions for Code First and then how you can override those conventions using either Data Annotations or the Fluent Configuration API. We will then go over the different relationship types for entities and how you can load related data in your queries. Finally we will see an interactive demo on Database Migrations.
