Expert Days is just around the corner (July 10, in case you forgot…), and I’m super excited toward my workshop “NHibernate – data access made easy!”. In case you haven’t heard of NHibernate yet, this is a the most successful, powerful and yet pretty easy-to-use open-source ORM technology for .Net. ORM stands for Object/Relational Mapping, and in short it means that it bridges the gap between your object-oriented business-logic layer and the relational database. It has many benefits, including:
1. It saves you a lot of time and money, because most of the DAL is implemented for you! (and it’s free!)
2. It makes your DAL more maintainable, and more reliable
3. Makes supporting multiple databases (e.g. SQL Server and Oracle) a breeze!
And all-in-all, it let you focus on your business-logic instead of on the DAL plumbing…
In the workshop I’ll explain everything you have to know in order to use NHibernate, so even if it’s the first time you hear about NHibernate, you’ll be able to start using it right after the workshop. That said, it doesn’t mean that I’ll be covering only the basic stuff! Experienced NHibernate users will gain a lot of advanced knowledge too! for example: Linq to NHibernate, using the 2nd level cache, Multi-queries and multi-criterias, and more.
In order to give you a taste from the workshop, I decided to share with you some of the slides…
Here’s a glimpse to some of the slides (with animations it looks even more impressive! )
And wait till you see the demos…
I hope you’re now as excited as I am toward this workshop. So what are you waiting for? Register now to ensure your place! I’m waiting to see you!
