Mastering Entity Framework Core Course Overview

Mastering Entity Framework Core Course Overview

The "Mastering Entity Framework Core" course is designed to provide comprehensive knowledge and hands-on experience with Entity Framework Core (EF Core), the modern object-database mapper for .NET. This course will help learners become proficient in working with EF Core for building data access layers in their applications.

Starting with an EF Core overview, learners will install the framework, create their first application, and understand the importance of NuGet packages. The course progresses to database context configuration and initialization, including context pooling. Learners will then delve into creating a model, managing database schemas through migrations and scaffolding, and querying data efficiently.

The course also covers saving data, change tracking, logging, diagnostics, and introduces testing strategies for EF Core. A module on performance optimization ensures that learners can fine-tune their applications for the best results. Lastly, the course explores various database providers compatible with EF Core.

By completing this course, learners will be well-equipped to earn certification in data access technologies and enhance their capabilities in working with Entity Framework with confidence. This certification data will attest to their proficiency in EF Core, making them valuable assets in the development field.

Course Prerequisites

To ensure that you can successfully undertake training in the Mastering Entity Framework Core course, the following prerequisites are recommended:

  • Basic knowledge of C# and .NET programming: You should be comfortable with C# syntax and concepts such as classes, methods, properties, and basic inheritance.
  • Understanding of relational databases: Familiarity with the fundamentals of relational databases, including tables, relationships, and primary/foreign keys is expected.
  • Familiarity with LINQ (Language Integrated Query): Since Entity Framework Core uses LINQ for querying data, you should have a grasp of how to write LINQ queries in C#.
  • Experience with Visual Studio or another integrated development environment (IDE): You should be able to navigate and use an IDE for developing .NET applications.
  • Conceptual knowledge of Object-Relational Mapping (ORM): A general understanding of ORM principles will be helpful, even if you do not have prior experience with Entity Framework.

Please note that while these prerequisites are aimed at ensuring a smooth learning experience, our course is designed to be accessible to a wide range of learners. If you are motivated and willing to invest time in learning, you are encouraged to join the Mastering Entity Framework Core course. Our instructors will guide you through the concepts and practical applications step by step.
