I moved a small EF 4.3 solution to EF5 (and to .NET 4.5) so I can add the new enum support to it. Then I started the process all over again and captured it as a screencast.
Pluralsight is hosting it on their blog here: Video: Entity Framework 5 New Features Sneak Peek. It’s 14 minutes long. I learned a whole bunch of tricks along with way which I’ve shared here.
- Moving a solution from EF4.3 +.NET 4 to EF5 +.NET 4.5
- Using the new SQL Server Object Explorer in Visual Studio 11
- Working with the new DbLocal database
- Seeing the enum support in action : how it impacts the database, inserting and querying data with enums.
