Introducing Entity Framework Core

  • Andrew Troelsen
  • Philip Japikse


Microsoft released Entity Framework Core along with .NET Core and ASP.NET Core. EF Core is a complete rewrite of EF, taking advantage of all the goodness that is .NET Core. However, being a rewrite, there wasn’t time to re-create all of the features in EF 6 within the timeline of the release of .NET Core 1.0. Based on feature comparison, the first version was, well simply put, weak. There really weren’t enough features to consider it a production-ready product.
