LINQ to Entities combines the power of Language Integrated Query with the ability of Entity Framework to provide a conceptual model of your relational database that more closely resembles how objects exist in the real world. This session begins with an in-depth look at the life of a LINQ to Entities query, which steps incur the most overhead, how so-called “warm queries” benefit from query plan and model metadata caching, and the most effective strategies for improving query performance. It then goes on to cover how to intercept query execution for debugging and logging purposes, LINQ query operators, and much, much more.
