I’ll be speaking at DevIntersection this fall in Vegas. The conference is co-located with AngleBrackets.
You can get a $50 discount off of the registration using my last name (LERMAN) as a discount code. You’ll see that the speakers are all competing to get you to use their code. That’s because the speaker with the most registrations tied to their names gets a nice little reward and our conference organizers know how we *love* a good little competition! :) So I jump into the fray with “ME! ME!” :)
Here are the talks I’ll be doing:
VS17: A Practical Look at Entity Framework in Domain Driven Architecture
Considering how your data will get persisted is not a concern with Domain Driven Design (DDD), but at some point you will have to persist your data somewhere, somehow. This session is for developers who use Entity Framework and want to know how some of the key DDD concepts such as aggregate roots, bounded contexts and value objects work out when it's time to add in your data layer. We'll talk about some of the struggles you may go through trying to change your perspective from data first to domain first from someone who has experienced this brain shift first hand.
VS15: Entity Framework 6 - Ninja Edition
Entity Framework 6, the first iteration of EF as an open-source project, is no longer just a pretty little unicorn. EF6 addresses many of the productivity issues that developers have requested to really make it shine as an ORM. While there are a number of new features that will be core to any EF development - such as async support, stored procedure support for code first, improved warm-up time - many of the new features are for developers who fall in the "ninja" category. In this session we'll run through many of these features like the return of custom code first conventions, query interception and SQL logging, connection resiliency, transaction improvements and more.
VS18: Entity Framework in the Enterprise
Demoware is great for getting your head around a new topic but we've been seeing Entity Framework demoware for 5 years now. You're probably not writing an application to manage your music collection or composing yet another Twitter client. You build big applications for your businesses and you need to know how to integrate Entity Framework in serious architectures. In this session, we'll look at breaking up your models following the Domain Driven Design Bounded Context pattern, designing repositories and units of work that are relevant to EF DbContext and DbSets. You'll also see how to build automated tests around code that involves Entity Framework, whether they be integration tests or strictly unit tests where Entity Framework seems to get in the way.
