Developers talking to DBA’s – what’s the world coming to?
Despite what some people think and a few cheap jokes there are many areas of commonality between these two worlds particularly in SQL Server, and two of these are LINQ and entity framework.
I know they both provide some sort of semantic layer between the data and the development environment but I wondered what they do exactly and why there are two. So I sandbagged a developer evangelist, Mike Taulty at SQL Bits goes fourth and interrogated him in front of some bright lights and cameras to find out more.
He’s put the video on Channel 9 (they won’t let me in there) and I have now put it on TechNet Edge here.
