ORM or Stored Procedures? Code First or Database First? Ad-Hoc Queries? Impedance Mismatch? If you’re a developer or you are a DBA working with developers you have heard all this terms at least once in your life…and usually in the middle of a strong discussion, debating about one or the other.
Well, thanks to StackOverflow’s Dapper, all these fights are finished. Dapper is a blazing fast microORM that allows developers to map SQL queries to classes automatically, leaving (and encouraging) the usage of stored procedures, parameterized statements and all the good stuff that SQL Server offers (JSON and TVP are supported too!)
In this session I’ll show how to use Dapper in your projects from the very basis to some more complex usages that will help you to create really fast applications without the burden of huge and complex ORMs.
The days of Impedance Mismatch are finally over!
Why I Want to Present This Session:
There is only one possible answer to the question of why someone would want to use NHibernate or EF or any ugly ORM now that Dapper exist. That’s because he never header or tried Dapper before.
That’s exactly why I’d like to present this session. To make life of DEVs and DBAs better (since I work with them every day!)
