Channel 9 episode: the Entity Framework one year later
Almost exactly a year ago Mike, Britt and I did a Channel 9 episode where we talked about the Entity Framework and we said that we were going to have a runtime that would expose an EDM view of the database, and we also said that we were going to have great tools to design the schemas and mappings and that we would services on top of the EDM.
Now, a year later, a lot of these things have become true. The Entity Framework is solid and just shipped beta 2, we put out the first CTP of our tools story, and we're building services on top such as Project Astoria.
Interesting to get some perspective a year later. In this new Channel 9 episode the same folks (Mike, Britt, myself) chat with Charles about the same stuff, but now with something concrete at hand :)
