Persistence ignorance is one of the biggest features missing in Entity Framework 1 and one of the most exciting features coming with Entity Framework 4. In this webcast, Dane Morgridge explains how to use plain old CLR object (POCO) classes to build applications that take advantage of the Entity Framework but carry no dependency on it, letting you build services more easily, which makes unit testing simpler and allows for greater separation of concerns without writing your own classes. Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 contains T4 templates to generate the POCO classes so that you can use all the same tools when working with the Entity Framework. This geekSpeak is hosted by Glen Gordon and Dani Diaz. The geekSpeak webcast series brings you industry experts in a "talk-radio" format hosted by developer evangelists from Microsoft.
