An essential part of most .NET applications, especially line of business software, is the ability to interact with relational databases.

Two principal frameworks that are available to .NET developers: ADO.NET and Entity Framework will be introduced in this course. The first is a set of classes that allow database programming at a low level, while the latter is a fully-featured Object-Relational Mapping (ORM) framework.  Participants will obtain practical knowledge on data manipulation in those frameworks while reviewing T-SQL language and discussing the data binding in various .NET UI architectures (ASP .NET and WPF).

Developers with working knowledge of .NET Framework, C# and basic understanding of SQL language will also benefit from this course.

Course Highlights:

  • Relational Databases review and basics of SQL
  • Query-based database programming with ADO.NET
  • Object-oriented database programming with Entity Framework
  • Data binding in Windows and Web applications

 Course Benefits:

  • Understand the relation between relational databases and .NET applications
  • Ability to retrieve data from queries or stored procedures and display them with Windows Presentation Foundation Graphics
  • Add, modify, and delete data from any .NET application
  • Build visual models that auto-generate data access code


  • Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise recommended.  While Windows 10 Home will work for C# I, the more advanced C# courses will require Pro or higher.
  • Visual Studio Community Edition 2017 or later which is freely available on Microsoft's website:


  • Intel/AMD multi-core processor (i3 or better processor)
  • 8GB RAM minimum, 16GB preferred
  • 50GB free hard drive space for Visual Studio and project files

Course Typically Offered: Online during Winter and Summer quarter

Prerequisites:  Working knowledge of Visual Studio, basic understanding of relational databases and SQL language.

Next steps:  Upon completion of this course, consider taking other courses in the C# Programming Certificate.
