In this episode, Rowan Miller shows you how to get started using his team's latest release, Entity Framework 5. Using a new ASP.NET MVC 4 project, he creates a database using code, then scaffolds an ASP.NET MVC 4 web site to enter and view data from the database. Using the new Migrations features of EF, he then adds some setup and teardown logic and changes the schema. Near the end, the new spatial data features of EF5 are used to demonstrate a geographical search feature, wherein he sorts a series of records in the database according to their proximity to his office. These new spatial features alone make this an exciting episode. Come check out EF5 and see how to use it in your ASP.NET MVC 4 applications today.
