MVC 5 with EF 6 in Visual Basic - Async and Stored Procedures with the Entity Framework

Friday, June 13, 2014 1:40 PM

VB.Net ASP.NET MVC Entity Framework

This tutorial is the ninth in a series of 12 that teach you how to build MVC 5 applications using Entity Framework for data access and Visual Basic. In earlier tutorials you learned how to read and update data using the synchronous programming model. In this tutorial you see how to implement the asynchronous programming model.

MVC 5 with EF 6 in Visual Basic - Updating Related Data

Friday, June 13, 2014 1:39 PM

VB.Net ASP.NET MVC Entity Framework

This tutorial is the eighth in a series of 12 that teach you how to build MVC 5 applications using Entity Framework for data access and Visual Basic. In the previous tutorial you displayed related data; in this tutorial you'll update related data. For most relationships, this can be done by updating either foreign key fields or navigation properties. For many-to-many relationships, the Entity Framework doesn't expose the join table directly, so you add and remove entities to and from the appropriate navigation properties.

MVC 5 with EF 6 in Visual Basic - Creating a More Complex Data Model

Friday, June 13, 2014 1:38 PM

VB.Net ASP.NET MVC Entity Framework

This tutorial is the sixth in a series of 12 that teach you how to build MVC 5 applications using Entity Framework for data access and Visual Basic. In the previous tutorials you worked with a simple data model that was composed of three entities. In this tutorial you'll add more entities and relationships, and you'll customize the data model by specifying formatting, validation, and database mapping rules. You'll see two ways to customize the data model:  by adding attributes to entity classes and by adding code to the database context class.

MVC 5 with EF 6 in Visual Basic - Code First Migrations and Deployment

Friday, June 13, 2014 1:37 PM

VB.Net ASP.NET MVC Entity Framework

This tutorial is the fifth in a series of 12 that teach you how to build MVC 5 applications using Entity Framework for data access and Visual Basic. This tutorial covers how to enable Code First Migrations and then deploy your database to Windows Azure. The Migrations feature enables you to change the data model and deploy your changes to production by updating the database schema without having to drop and re-create the database. The section covering deployment to Azure is optional; you can continue with the remaining tutorials without having deployed the project.
