Entity Framework Database Performance Anti-patterns with Russ Thomas

Entity Framework Database Performance Anti-patterns with Russ Thomas

Entity framework is one of the most popular ORMs in software development, but it does not yet have a great reputation among SQL Server database professionals, especially those responsible for server performance. This collection of modules will identify some of the most common "real world" code smells and anti-patterns that keep EF-based applications from reaching optimal performance from the perspective of the SQL Server database. Many of these concepts could also apply to other relational data sources that Entity Framework is compatible with as well as other ORMs popular for communicating with SQL Server.
