New Pluralsight: Entity Framework in the Enterprise
bit.ly/PS_EFEnt It's already in top 10 with 5 star average! (Yes I'm thrilled!)
Here's a comment from someone who watched it:
FhyrDrake 2 days ago
I just watched Julie Lerman's prior Entity Framework in the Enterprise three weeks ago, before this new course was released, and boy am I glad she's updated the course. I had thought the previous version was a bit dated (2016 vs 2012 & EF6 vs EF4) and a bit basic with what Julie refers to as Demo Ware. This updated course goes into more details about architecting projects, improved Moq testing with EF6, and a better explanation of DDD with Bounded Contexts using Schema to segregate areas. I already had a good understanding of EF, DDD, Repositories, UoW, and CQRS before watching and while I wouldn't set up things 100% this way in my own applications they did jump start some refactorings and rethinking on how I maintain my solution, which is the purpose of these courses, to give fresh ideas as technology evolves, just as Entity Framework has. Thanks for updating the course and for those who have watched the previous version, definitely give this new one a watch.

Well, time for a "new course" announcement. I created "Getting Started with Entity Framework 6" for Pluralsight. While it was designed for newbies to EF, incluing an intro that is appropriate for managers, I've been hearing that even old EF hands are benefiting from it.

http://www.pluralsight.com/courses/entity-framework-6-getting-started

Let me know if you need a 30 day trial to watch this.

Here is some of the feedback I've received via the LiveFyre discussion on Pluralsight:

Thanks for another great course! Even after having studied all your courses and books, I find this course to add value by pointing out exactly what is the key knowledge to understand in order to be successful in using EF. Therefore I find this course both to be a good starting point as well as a great summary for more experienced programmers, and also a much needed wrap-up of EF6 just in time to start living with EF6 and EF7 side by side.

@HansKrJensrud @julielerman1 agreed. This is an amazing course I just love. Great work Julie and thank you so much!!

Thank you Julie another excellent course. Much appreciated; even though I've used EF before, I was still able to gain a lot from watching this course.

A new Pluralsight course!  Looking Ahead to Entity Framework 7.  It's only 2.5 hrs long and targets:
What's in EF7? Should you use it? When should you use it? Should you upgrade existing apps? Also, be informed about the whats and whys of the staged releases. As usual, I dug in pretty deeply for this one.
This course is designed to prepare developers for big changes and important new capabilities coming with Entity Framework 7.

This was a great help when I (who am a software professional, but not an IT Pro!) was helping my 13 year old neighbor who was building his own PC from a kit. :) Last step was to create a bootable thumb drive to install Windows. I made him watch this a few times and then we did it together. Thanks!

+Steve Smith  and I are excited to finally have our Domain-Driven Design Fundamentals course available on Pluralsight (http://juliel.me/PS-DDD ) . It was a long haul creating the course but we wanted it to be just right. And coordinating our schedules became tricky since we really wanted to collaborate completely on this, not just divide up the work and sew it together. It's been out for about a week and the reception has been great. Good ratings, great feedback in the discussions and it's currently ranked #4 (based on past 10 days viewing) in the entire library of some [I believe] 1500 courses. If you don't have a subscription (but really, they are only $29/month), there is a 10 day free trial on the website and I also have 30 day free trial cards I can share. Let us know what you think!

New Pluralsight: Play by Play: EF Core 1.0 First Look
http://juliel.me/PS_EFCoreLook I'm working on Getting Started with EF Core 1.0, but this 1.5 hr demo that I did with Geoffrey Grosenbach can give you a good look at what to expect. I did it on a Macbook so you can see even though EF Core is cross platform, it is the same APIs and databae interaction no matter what platform you are using. I had a lot of fun on this one!

well "amazing"? I don't know. But I had a lot of fun talking to Carl & Richard about the sadistic pleasure of learning new tech!
 
So what happens when you dive head-first into the latest Javascript libraries?

Carl and Richard talk to the amazing Julie Lerman about her experiences learning Aurelia - http://aurelia.io/ - and the rest of the stack around building web pages in a modern way, including nodejs, express and DocumentDB.

So what prompted this? Julie talks about wanting to explore new things and just having some fun in a place she has very little experience - but is willing to learn! The conversation digs into the awesome community and resources available for building modern web applications - you need to play with the walkthroughs and sample apps!

Part of the challenge is getting your head around the whole stack - there are lots of differences in the way you think and work in the Single Page Application approach to web pages. Julie also talks about experimenting with different development tools including Visual Studio Code. You don't have to just live in Visual Studio, there are other ways to get things done!

You can listen to the show at http://ow.ly/R54HB

What new Javascript library are you experimenting with? Let us know in the comments below or on the .NET Rocks website - if we read your comment on the show, we'll send you a .NET Rocks mug!
Aurelia is the most powerful, flexible and forward-looking JavaScript client framework in the world.

Just for fun.... Pluralsight writer Whitney Larsen interviewed me and blogged the results. She's a great writer. I was impressed with the journalistic twists. She also did her homework and asked great questions. 
Pluralsight author Julie Lerman tells us what it takes to become a successful developer.

Have you watched the Domain Driven Design Fundamentals course that Steve Smith and I did for Pluralsight? I'd love to know what you think. If you want to watch it but don't have a Pluralsight subscription, let me know and I can share a 30 day trial with you so you can watch it.

Hey Julie, loved the course!  It's a great primer for DDD, and I'm really glad you mentioned Vaughn Vernon's book too.

I've been trying to implement domain events in a similar fashion to what you Steve did using Udi's approach, but I've noticed some major obstacles.

The first is that handlers are "global".  By that I mean they get called for all events regardless of the originator.  In your sample, if you had multiple Schedules, they'd all get called to handle an appointment update.

The second is that the handling of domain events occurs immediately.  In your sample, a SignalR handler sends event data to the client, but the appointment hasn't actually been saved to the database.  If the save fails for whatever reason, that event isn't really valid, is it?

What are your thoughts?
