A Fluent Learning Book

 

Based on the principles of cognitive science and instructional design, Fluent Entity Framework, part of the Fluent Learning series, is a true tutorial that will help you build effective working models for understanding a large and complex subject: developing Entity Framework applications using Visual Studio.

 

Most introductory books just talk at you and give you “exercises” that have more to do with taking dictation than actually learning. Fluent Entity Framework is different. It guides you through learning the way your mind likes to learn: by solving puzzles, making connections, and building genuine understanding instead of just memorizing random facts.

 

DETAILED INFORMATION ON HOW TO…

• Write .NET applications using Entity Framework 5.0

• Use all three of the supported Entity Framework workflows

• Create, extend, and query arbitrarily complex data models

• Use the Entity Framework Fluent API and T4 templates to create truly provider-independent data models

 

Synopsis:

Based on the principles of cognitive science and advanced instructional design, Fluent ADO.NET Entity Framework is a true tutorial that gives .NET developers a deep practical understanding of one of today's most useful and challenging technologies: ADO.NET Entity Framework (EF).

 

Conventional "tutorials" briefly describe the material and present "exercises" requiring users to type someone else's source code. This book is radically different: it guides readers through learning the way their minds likes to learn, by solving puzzles, making connections, and building genuine understanding. Developers don't merely parrot syntax: they gain profound insight into how EF connects relational and object paradigms - and how to use it to build superior .NET data access applications.

 

This book's breadth is impressive. More important, its open, inviting format and exercise-driven approach makes learning these complex topics easier and more natural than ever before.
