Deployment Automation with Entity Framework

Entity Framework (EF) is an amazing tool for development teams, and its MIgrations functionality creates a great high-level change control system. However, there is not much in the form of production-level guidance in existence with regards to how true production environments should be managed with EF + MIgrations and the long-term source control concepts.

This session will explore Entity Framework MIgrations and the various models that can be used in conjunction with the CI/CD tools of your choice. (Azure DevOps, Octopus, GitHub Actions, etc). By taking a methodical review of how Entity Framework migrations are managed and how they can be leveraged attendees will have the information necessary to implement solid solutions for their teams.

Including in this discussion will be the concept of Migration Rests & long-term change management, which is critical for true enterprise solutions.
