MVC Storefront, Part 4: Linq To Sql Spike
In this webcast I dive pretty deep into Data Access and talk about some architectural decisions I need to make, specifically how to get Linq To Sql to map to my model properly. I also go over some feedback I received at the MVP summit last week.
Nine Inch Nail Time
Steven Harman suggested I run a Spike (a quick prototyping exercise to test out a theory) to make sure that my data access strategy will work with an actual database. Good idea.
I quickly ran into some issues with Linq To Sql, but found some neat ways to keep things clean and tidy so I don't explode my database all over my happy little application.
