Thank you, Microsoft for inviting us over to VS Live 2016. Our NCache team attended VS Live 2016 under the leadership of Mr. Iqbal Khan. The event was attended by developers, software architects, engineers, and designers. The theme for this year’s event was “Give your code a voice!”. Organized by Microsoft, the event convened unbiased and cutting edge technology education on Microsoft platform. Visual Studio Live is the trusted resource for .NET developer-focused education.
Held at Microsoft Campus, event’s sessions revolved discussions around hot topics like Visual Studio, ASP.NET, ASP.NET Core, Database and In-Memory technologies. Iqbal delivered a talk which highlighted the scaling challenges for .NET applications. Iqbal’s talk for was on topic: “Scaling EF Apps with Distributed Caching”. Entity Framework is gaining popularity as .NET object-relational mapper from Microsoft that eliminates the need for most of the data-access code that developers usually need to write.
Developers learned how to use distributed caching in their Entity Framework applications for removing scalability bottlenecks. Iqbal covered some important agenda items around EF Scalability bottlenecks and how to use distributed caching with EF applications. Iqbal also demonstrated how to handle EF Entity Collection and relationships along with a distributed cache.
