AutoCAD Recorded Classes: Interesting Developments: Exploring Entity Framework for AutoCAD Development

Database management gears. Autodesk University 2015 recorded AutoCAD class on Entity Framework development.

I won’t pretend to understand any of this. All I can say for sure is your developer colleagues at Autodesk® University 2015 really liked this class, which introduces Microsoft’s Entity Framework—“one of the leading object-relational mapper frameworks in use today,” I’m told—and now you can take it all in. At your leisure. For free.

So if you’d like to learn how to …

  • Create an Entity Framework model from an existing database using Code First
  • Configure database options using Fluent API and DataAnnotations
  • Work with Entity Framework objects such as DbContext and DbSet to create, retrieve, update, and delete database records and
  • Create AutoCAD objects with data queried from a database via the Entity Framework model

… and you can spare a little over an hour, there’s really nowhere else you want to be. Recorded and available here in its entirety, with handouts:

Leslie is fanning the glowing embers of the AutoCAD Blog into a raging (yet carefully managed!) bonfire, bringing light and warmth to AutoCAD customers wherever they're huddled. He has been writing, editing, helping design, and managing the production of high-tech marketing communications—everything from party invitations, web banners, and tweets to annual reports, white papers, and animated videos—for longer than he cares to admit. So don't ask. Leslie is thrilled to be back in the Autodesk saddle after 14 years spent wandering the desolate, non-Autodesk high-tech landscape.
