Make your SQL Queries Dapper with Mark Thompson
Mark says: "I’ll talk about the different object relational mappers out there – Why
the concept of ORM’s is a good idea but the real world performance
problems that seem all to common as applications scale in production.
We’ll then do a comparison of the entity framework and NHibernate to
some of the other options out there, including Dapper.
Dapper is a Micro ORM created by Stack Exchange (Stack Overflow) to
address exactly these problems.
I’ll then show how easy it is to get started with Dapper (How can the
creators of Stack Overflow be wrong?)
By the end of the talk you should have an understanding of Dapper, how
to use it and a common repository style pattern I’ve seen adopted when
We will be using C#, Mysql and possibly Sqlite as well as the Entity
Framework, NHibernate, Dapper and Peta Poco."
Mark is a Software Development Manager who has worked on software
projects from Military Communications to printing best before dates on
ready meals. He favours the Microsoft Technology Stack, C#, MVC and Team
Foundation Server, and is a Certified Scrum Master and Professional.
When he isn't ranting about code or Scrum he is trying to convince his
two young daughters software development is cool.
