Beginning Entity Framework Core 5
Use the code-driven approach of Entity Framework Core 5 to build a functional web application that accesses a database on the backend server. This book covers the common use cases of Entity Framework that a developer needs to master in order to begin building applications that run against a database.

SQL Server Data Automation Through Frameworks
Learn to automate SQL Server operations using frameworks built from metadata-driven stored procedures and SQL Server Integration Services (SSIS). Bring all the power of Transact-SQL (T-SQL) and Microsoft .NET to bear on your repetitive data, data integration, and ETL processes. Do this for no added cost over what you've already spent on licensing SQL Server. The tools and methods from this book may be applied to on-premises and Azure SQL Server instances. The SSIS framework from this book works in Azure Data Factory (ADF) and provides DevOps personnel the ability to execute child packages outside a project - functionality not natively available in SSIS.
Frameworks not only reduce the time required to deliver enterprise functionality, but can also accelerate troubleshooting and problem resolution. You'll learn in this book how frameworks also improve code quality by using metadata to drive processes. Much of the work performed by data professionals can be classified as "drudge ...
