Entity Framework and LINQ

This web-based training course on Entity Framework and LINQ functionality, administration and development, is available online to all individuals, institutions, corporates and enterprises in India (New Delhi NCR, Bangalore, Chennai, Kolkatta), US, UK, Canada, Australia, Singapore, United Arab Emirates (UAE), China and South Africa. No matter where you are located, you can enroll for any training with us - because all our training sessions are delivered online by live instructors using interactive, intensive learning methods.

LINQ or language integrated query is the novel concept of querying programming data in .NET. These programming data which are to be queried can be taken up from XML, databases and also objects. Language integrated queries are now being used as an alternative to SQL queries for better handling of XML documents. EntityFramework of ADO.NET on the other hand is an object-relational mapping framework for .NET frameworks. The framework is designed to enable programmers and developers for creating data access applications through programming with a conceptual application model as compared to a programming method with a relational storage schema. Using Entity framework and LINQ eliminates the need for almost all of the data access code that needs to be written in a redundant manner.

This EntityFramework and LINQ online training provides a learning experience for understanding how code volumes can be decreased and how data oriented applications can be maintained. The students can expect to be well versed in framing queries easily in LINQ and implementing them as needed against the Entity Data Model. The LINQ architecture will be explained in detail and creating LINQ to SQL queries in order to execute SQL server's stored procedures will be taught. There are no pre-requisites for this course but it will be beneficial if the students have a working knowledge of C-sharp and SQL-server tables and stored procedures.
