Well its been more than a couple of days since the last new piece of .NET technology was released so it seems its time for another one. The Entity Framework which has been known about in the community for a long time now is just about released and information has been coming out about it a lot recently.
The Entity Framework is a new way in .NET to access and use data in your application.
There is a cool FAQ on Dan Simmons (Dev Team leader for Microsoft on the Entity Framework Team) blog: http://blogs.msdn.com/dsimmons/pages/entity-framework-faq.aspx
Plus there is a .NET Rocks show on it and a couple of DNRtv shows on it.
If you havent heard of or listened to / watched Dot Net Rocks then you should check it out. Its a great resource to hear about new .NET stuff and the DNRtv is great for seeing the whole process of getting started with technologies like Entity Framework. Its an order of magnitude more helpfull then a written walkthough.
Check it out and let me know what you think.
