Entity Framework 4.0 Blitz! IndyNDA Presentation

Well, I had a great time at the IndyNDA meeting last night! Probably about 100 people in attendance and very few of them were actively using Entity Framework …So hopefully this presentation was a little bit of an eye opener for them. Next month I plan on doing a whole list of Entity Framework topics …basically it will be my Month of EF ….or Month of Effing EF 4.0 !  or something cool like that …..if people might want to see more webcasts on it then comment on this post with what you would like to see and I will try to see about doing more LiveMeetings this coming month on this topic. For those of you whom attended last night here are my code files….remember this IS NOT necessarily production type code but more of my stream of thought stuff.. Presentation Files Cheers!...
