Target Audience: Deep Dive

When talking with development teams about Entity Framework I often get one of two arguments. The first being that "Entity Framework Is Slow" and the second "But Entity Framework brings all data back and then filters." These opinions and more are not true, and the performance of Entity Framework can be just as good, if not better than other methods of data access. In this session, we will investigate Entity Framework and how to best manage the performance in an application. We will discuss common pitfalls, limitations, and other things to consider. Most importantly we will finish with a side-by-side demonstration of EF performance compared to that of another method. At the end of this session you will have the knowledge necessary to talk intelligently about Entity Framework performance and to know how to get the best performance out of your applications.
