Tim Corey explores Entity Framework, an amazing set of tooling around data access.

With EFCore, that tooling becomes even more powerful. So why is it that I still don’t recommend that people use EFCore?

In this video, he walks you through the best practices of Entity Framework and EFCore and point out the pitfalls to avoid. We will discuss where there are problems and what to do to resolve those problems.

This video tutorial explains what is the difference between .NET Framework and .NET Core for desktop applications.

What are the benefits of .NET Core and what should you choose for your apps.

Machine Learning is red hot right now and entering the field can be daunting for newcomers.

There are new languages, tooling, and frameworks to learn on top of very deep mathematical concepts.

Here’s a great article on ML.NET and how it brings familiar programming languages and techniques into the tools developers use every day.

That’s where ML.Net comes in. It’s Microsoft’s open source, cross-platform machine learning tool for .Net and .Net Core, targeting .Net Standard, running on Windows, Mac OS, and Linux systems. It’s extensible, so it works with not only Microsoft’s own ML tooling but also with other frameworks such as Google’s TensorFlow and the ONNX cross-platform model export technology. By supporting as wide a selection of frameworks as possible, it gives you the option to pick and choose the ML models that are closest to your needs, fine tuning them to fit.

.NET Core 3 will be a major milestone with tons of new features, performance updates and support for new workloads.

In this video, Richard Lander and Scott Hunter get together to discuss some of the highlights that developers can look forward to in this new release.
