This week’s CTP4 release of the “EF Code-First” functionality provides a pretty nice code-centric way to work with data.  It brings with it a lot of productivity, as well as a lot of power.  In today’s tutorial I focused mostly on some of the new productivity enhancements provided with the CTP4 release.  There are many more scenarios we could drill into including its Fluent API for enabling custom persistence mapping rules, its improved testability support, and other more advanced capabilities.
