Better Object Mapping in .NET with Dapper

Regular Session

When people talk about using ORMs (Object Relational Mappers) like Entity Framework or nHibernate in their projects, they common are only looking for one fundamental feature: the ability to map SQL output to C# object. Large ORM-based solutions add additional complexity, and black-box much of what is happening behind the scenes. What if there are a smaller, more efficent way to do object mapping without the overhead of an EF? Dapper to the rescue! Dapper is a micro-ORM whose core function is to reduce some of the ceremony of talking to a SQL database while leaving you in complete control! In this session, we'll walk through many of the typical use-cases for Dapper and why you might want to consider it for your current or next project!
