Tim Laverty:
ADO Entity Framework 4.0

Come see how the ADO.NET Entity Framework enables new capabilities to leverage multiple development approaches, for example the use of code-first, model-first, and database-first. Hear how, regardless of the development approach, developers will benefit from the Entity Framework and the deep integration with the rest of the Microsoft .NET Framework 4, such as the Microsoft ASP.NET MVC, Dynamic Data, and Windows Presentation Foundation.

      POCO support
      Better N-Tier API support, and the STE template
      Foreign Key Association support
      … and more
