Entity Framework (EF) Core is a lightweight, extensible, open source and cross-platform version of the popular Entity Framework data access technology.
EF Core can serve as an object-relational mapper (O/RM), which:
- Enables .NET developers to work with a database using .NET objects.
- Eliminates the need for most of the data-access code that typically needs to be written.
- Visual Studio 2019
- MS SQL Server and Querries
What is Entity Framework Core
The Microsoft Entity Framework Core or EF Core is Microsoft’s implementation of ORM Framework. The applications created using the EF does not work with the database directly. The application works only with the API provided by the EF for database related operations. The EF maps those operations to the database.
