I might write a Tutorial, where would I put it?

Posted 11 July 2011 - 07:02 AM

No, "Up yours" is not the answer I was looking for. Thanks anyway. ;)

Okay, seriously now. I've spent the last week learning all kinds of things about the entity framework. Enough so that I can give some basic pointers on it. I'm writing something for use by my coworkers anyway so I can probably adapt that with relative ease to a tutorial for dic (relative easy being translating it into english).

The thing is, where the fudge does that go? Database? vb.net? It doesn't really seem to fit anywhere.

Is this even worth having a tutorial for? Obviously I think so, but that might only be because I needed one myself and had to scrounge it up from dozens of different pages.

Is This A Good Question/Topic? 0

Well - what language is it in? C# goes to C#.. VB.NET goes to VB.NET. If it's more frilly and less language dependent put it in the 'software development' area.

Is the tutorial about designing the database/more on the SQL end? If so, the Databases section is the best place to put it. If it's about connecting, utilizing, and interacting with the database from a more programming perspective, the section for the language being used would be the best place to put it. :)

Well, I'll mostly cover the linq-to-entities stuff and how to get this whole shebang to work in the first place.

I'll do it in vb.net because I don't know c# but really, I could do this in c#. Which goes to show how deep into vb.net this delves. Not very deep.

Another cool thing about the entity framework is that it doesn't really matter what database you're working on. I'm using Oracle for the centralized database and SQL CE 4.0 for the local databases. There's some small differences in setting things up, but once you're there, you're talking to both of them in the same way : linq-to-entities.

For me it sounds like VB.NET.
