    👨‍🏫 How to use EF with MongoDB from a .NET Application
    Are you For a long time, Entity Framework (an object RELATIONAL mapper) and MongoDB were an odd couple. After all, ORMs were made for tables, right? But now there is full support for using EF with MongoDB, letting you interact with data using the familiar context paradigm.
    In this meetup session, we’ll explore using Entity Framework (EF) with MongoDB. As C# developers, we’ll dive into the intricacies of mapping .NET objects to MongoDB documents and leveraging EF for data manipulation. Whether you’re working with MongoDB or EF, join us...

    But, there’s a twist. Not only will our three course meal be prepared and served by talented catering and hospitality students at the College, we will be joined by T-Level students in digital subjects, who want to meet face to face with the city’s tech leaders. This Senior Leaders Dinner is all about raising aspirations, giving young people real direction into tech, and potentially making a big difference to their lives.

    Plus, this special venue offers up a light, relaxing space with fantastic views across the city. There’s plenty of room to mingle and we’ll have time before and after dinner for meeting new people and catching up with old friends.
