Welcome to the Entity Framework Core Project Wiki
Entity Framework (EF) Core is a lightweight, extensible, and cross-platform version of the popular Entity Framework data access technology.
EF Core is an object-relational mapper (O/RM) that enables .NET developers to work with a database using .NET objects. It eliminates the need for most of the data-access code that developers usually need to write.
- The official documentation of EF Core is located in the Microsoft Docs site.
- The EF Core Roadmap is located in the documentation.
- People writing a provider should start with the information in the documentation.
