Topics of Discussion:

[3:33] Giorgi has worked with all the frameworks and libraries that Microsoft has come out with over the past 10‒15 years. He discusses using Entity Framework and starting his small speaking engagements.

[5:12] Sessionize is a website where you can put out some different topics that you’d be willing to speak on, and just reach out to different user groups to take the plunge and do some public speaking for the first time.

[6:03] Other types of data with Entity Framework beyond relational data, such as hierarchical data type from SQL Server.

[8:49] How it simplifies your life.

[9:28] What about JSON? Are there any limitations on the back-end database?

[13:00] Is the support in EF Core 7.0 good enough to give a try if you’re going against SQL Server?

[14:09] What other types of data are interesting to work with with Entity Framework?

[14:36] Using geospatial data. What does it even look like?

[18:30] Full text search, and how it’s different from a regular text search.

[23:20] There are a lot of features to uncover in relational databases that we aren’t even aware of yet.

[26:22] There are some problems and some tasks that are better solved with non-relational databases, but the majority can overlap between the two systems.
