“Big Data” Entity Framework 6

Today I’m going to write about handling much data in Entity Framework. On 3/12/2015 I did my first hackathon (Hack The Future @ Antwerp). We had to process a SQL database with 1 000 000 records.

I will not tell you everything about EF (there are a lot of tuturials on the web). Instead I’ll show you the most basic example to get EF working with SQLite, after all it wasn’t that easy!
