Entity Framework Core Cookbook – Second Edition

Some of you may be aware that my new book for Packt Publishing is out! It is titled Entity Framework Core Cookbook – Second Edition because it was meant to be the second edition of Entity Framework 4.1: Expert’s Cookbook. In fact, it is mostly a full rewrite.

It is organized in chapters:

Chapter 1: Improving Entity Framework in the Real World

Chapter 2: Mapping Entities

Chapter 3: Validation and Changes

Chapter 4: Transactions and Concurrency Control

Chapter 5: Querying

Chapter 6: Advanced Scenarios

Chapter 7: Performance and Scalability

Appendix: Pitfalls

When I started writing it, .NET Core was still in early RC1. Things changed a lot from RC1 to RC2 and then again to RTM, so I had to revisit all chapters in the end. It was a pity that EF Core 1.1 was released shortly after the book was closed, because I could have talked about it too. Also, there are things that I could have covered, like extending Entity Framework Core, but there were so many of them! Smile Maybe in a future time!

Those of you who are interested can get a copy from the Pack Publishing site or from other sellers, either as an e-book or in hardcopy.

I want to thank everyone at Packt Publishing, namely Chaitanya Nair, Merint Mathew and Siddhi Chavan for their professionalism and support!
