A few weeks ago we released a couple of whitepapers that discuss the future directions of the Microsoft Data Platform and in particular the specifics around the next version of ADO.NET and the ADO.NET Entity Framework.
Recently the Channel 9 folks came by Building 35 (SQL Server building at Microsoft) and we shot an episode with Mike Pizzo, Britt Johnston and myself chatting about why we chose to work on the Entity Framework for the next version of ADO.NET, what scenarios we’re targeting with it and some drill downs into what the code and designers actually look like in the current bits.
You can find the Channel 9 video here. As always, feedback is welcome.
