I've been putting a lot of effort into the experimental vNext platform lately, but that doesn't mean that the good old Piranha isn't getting any love. Right now I'm focusing on Enity Framework, and I'd like to share why.
One of the drawbacks with the current architecture has for the last years been the data layer. It was originally written before Entity Framework code first was released, and has been slightly patched since then to keep up. The database has been created, and updated with raw SQL and this, together with multiple data mappings has complicated for people interested in collaborating on new features. With the next version I'm taking a first step to remedy this.
