    This is beneficial but is there a way to hook this up to your database in Sql Server? I don't want to have to create a model for every table in my database. Before Entity Framework Core I created this by using an ADO.net model.

    Hi Adam,

    Yes! In EF 4-6 you could reverse engineer  a database into a code first model ( a one shot deal) with built in or 3rd party tools. EF Core also has the possibility using the CLI or Powershell "scaffold" command. I've written about it in this MSDN Mag article ( https://msdn.microsoft.com/magazine/mt614250 ).You can also learn about scaffolding in the docs or if you have a Pluralsight subscription (or trial ..ping me for one if you wan) I've demonstrated it in my EF Core Getting Started course that's linked above. :)

    Julie, Thank you for your response. I was able to get my model created successfully! Can I implement this library I created in a project that has not been converted to .NET Core yet? I am getting an error when I import this library that it can't find a System.Runtime dependency. Thank you for your help.
