This is a week to celebrate for the .NET community, as .NET Core 2.0, ASP.NET Core 2.0, and Entity Framework 2.0 shipped! We’re also getting an update to Visual Studio 2017 with lots of improvements for .NET Core developers. Read the announcement posts!

User group meeting of the week: Entity Framework Core for Enterprise Applications in Boston

What do you do when your simple Entity Framework app isn’t so simple anymore? The entity relationships are starting to get complex. You’re getting worried about performance problems. Can you even use Entity Framework in a high-performance, scalable web application?

In this session, Benjamin Day will go beyond the simple Code First entity framework cases and get into more complex class designs and relationships. He’ll talk about the sticky issues around lazy-loading, concurrency, cascading deletes, occasional connectivity, and performance testing. Plus, along the way he’ll talk strategy for DevOps, stored procedures, unit testing, and incremental deployment, too.

Join the DevBoston user group on Tuesday, August 22 in Burlington.

Contribute to the week in .NET

As always, this weekly post couldn’t exist without community contributions, and I’d like to thank all those who sent links and tips. The F# section is provided by Phillip Carter, the gaming section by Stacey Haffner, the Xamarin section by Dan Rigby, and the Azure and UWP section by Michael Crump.

You can participate too. Did you write a great blog post, or just read one? Do you want everyone to know about an amazing new contribution or a useful library? Did you make or play a great game built on .NET?
We’d love to hear from you, and feature your contributions on future posts. Please add your posts, it takes only a second.

We pick the articles based on the following criteria: the posts must be about .NET, they must have been published this week, and they must be original contents. Publication in Week in .NET is not an endorsement from Microsoft or the authors of this post.

This week’s post (and future posts) also contains news I first read on The ASP.NET Community Standup, on Weekly Xamarin, on F# weekly, and on The Morning Brew.
